Two new alcohol inks today.  I'm currently doing a landscape class online with Karen Walker and these are both done for that class.  The first one shown here is titled "Rivulet" and is from the Northern Idaho Macgruder Corridor wilderness. I have been trying to paint this picture since I visited the area 3 years ago and have not been able to do it in watercolor.  I think I've found the right media now for scenes like this one.  Rich in color and texture, alcohol inks fit the bill perfectly!

The second painting is Morrell Falls, east of Seeley Lake, Montana, early last spring when there was a lot of runoff from the snow of that winter.  Also an alcohol ink.  

Both of these paintings are doing on Yupo, an opaque plastic sheeting.  Both are masked and poured first, then detail is done by lifting and replacing color with the use of isopropyl alcohol.
