Abstract Sunflower ~ alcohol inks on Yupo

6.5x11 alcohol inks created a few days ago on Yupo, a synthetic plastic paper.  After spritzing with rubbing alcohol in a mister bottle, I dropped yellow, blue and red inks, letting them run and blend while tilting.  Inks dry very fast so next I did the centre in several shades of reds; yellow was dropped in on top as was green.  Small dots of rainforest green details put in around the sphere.  I used Pinata brand inks by Jacquard.  This is the second floral experiment.  Today I did a larger sunflower so will show it later.  Stay tuned.  I'm loving the vivid hues of these inks and the overall free spontaneous look made with no pencil or brush.
