7.5x5.75 alcohol inks on gessoed matboard, another experiment with inks on a different support. First I dribbled a line of rubbing alcohol 50% vertically for the stem then put lime green ink at tip of chopstick to control the flow. Next I "drew" left side of poppy petals with spray mister stem, taken out of its bottle, dipping back and forth to provide a path for the inks. Using Sangria, Magenta, and Santa Fe reds along with small amount of Sunbright yellow I dotted the inside of the flower. Also used a plastic dropper to put in tiny amounts of alcohol here and there. The inks dry very fast so lastly I used sapphire blue, a dark hue, for the poppy centre.
