Sepia Flows

My investigation of water media continues. I decided to test out shellac ink and see if it could run like watercolor. I've worked with this kind of ink before but in a more direct application. This time I approached it in a different way by dropping ink on wet paper and/or puddles of water. I discovered that ink is much heavier and doesn't run as easy as watercolor. You literally have to push it around.

This did not stop me since the main idea behind this process was to learn and, yes, to have fun.
