Firestorm ~ alcohol ink abstract

4x6 alcohol inks on professonal high gloss photo paper done today with repeated applications of the Jacquard Pinata inks.  With alcohol 50% spritzed and dropped on the surface the initial magenta and blue mixed to form a dark purple.  I've let it remain in upper right corner while washing away most of the other abstract pattern as it was too dark.  Some areas simply coagulated then floated off the very slick paper, which are the lights seen.  In those, I dropped yellow then blew the color around with a drinking straw.  Also I used a plastic dropper for finer alcohol spots.
