Went on a two day acrylic ink course to find out what another artist did with her inks. Great fun using salt, cling film, tissue paper etc. We each chose a different image from boxes of photos taken on her (Sue Williams) travels and I chose a series of prickly pear photos she had taken in Australia. This is just one of them using cling film, though I should have waited longer for it to dry before removing to give stronger texture.

Did a larger one with lots of crystal and table salts giving good texture. Cut a piece out and framed for a forthcoming show. Will photo and post shortly.

With my apologies for lack of commenting on your posts due to family commitments and lack of  time.  I have quick peep from time to time.

With all that is going on it's a wonder you manage to paint let alone read and comment on blogs! Love the cactus. s x

Really like this painting! It's always fun to try new things. Like you, I haven't had time for blogging lately; first I was sick, now "life" is getting in the way!

Joan - your painting is wonderful - the variety of textures and colors is wonderful, and yet with all that going on - the painting is completely unified. Great job.
