    1. Hi Olga, not this time. I wanted to use the final piece for a final piece so didn't actually want to smudge it, but I think I might next time!

  2. Looks a bit like strange patterns at the water's edge, just as the waves are rolling in and out.

    1. Hi Valerianna - if the black bits were white bits they would seem just like foam patterns wouldn't they?

  3. Olga beat me to it! 2 thoughts kept running through my mind - looks like dark chocolate and oh! I hope she got monoprints. Did you?

    1. Hi J, as mentioned I didn't want to muck it up, so left it quietly to dry, but am now keen to get back and make another one. Like drizzles of dark chocolate...mmm more yum!

    1. Hi Jo - it certainly look different when it dries, so I was pleased to capture that glistening raised wetness!

  12. All that shine... what type of ink did you use Fiona? It looks like glossy indian ink and I am drawn into those swirls and curves which no doubt look completely different now they are dry. Would love to see the comparison.

  13. It's actually a bottle of Japanese sumi ink, and I used a syringe - hence the depth I think. I haven't been back to the studio since I did it, so shall take some after shots as well when I get there!
