One of the greatest characteristics about alcohol inks is that they can easily be re-worked. Here’s an example of what I mean with the re-working of Dreamscape No. 596:
Better, but when I looked at it the next morning, it felt “choppy.” I was willing to lose it by re-working again.
Toned down the whites, added gold highlights and lost some edges.
Felt good about signing this one.
I actually like the patina that develops when alcohol inks are re-worked and layered. I often re-work, not for the purpose of correcting, but creating.
Some mediums are more agreeable to re-working than others. There’s always gesso and collage for extreme therapeutic measures 🙂
Bring out your not so favorites and give them another chance. Happy Discoveries!
