Alcohol Ink-Secret Garden
Lyrical Impressionistic alcohol ink art by Dee Van Houten. My Secret Garden is a one-of-a-kind original painting. As I paint, it seems to be controlled chaos that takes over (and sometimes not so controlled which is fine by me) as it just depends where this wonderful fluid medium takes me. There are a lot of very subtle things going on in the background (dragonflies, butterflies, delicate flowers seem to just appear). In this painting, I used various shades of greens and yellows with touches of orange, purples and aqua. Sold unframed. Image size: 9" x 12"
Alcohol inks are acid-free, highly pigmented and permanent. This medium is used on non-porous substrates such as glass, tile, plastics, metals and glossy papers and the colors appear to just float on top since this type of substrate does not absorb the ink.
I spray the finished piece with a clear protective coating that will not disturb the alcohol ink. I then use a thin layer of acrylic UV polymer varnish for a final layer of protection.
This original alcohol ink painting was created at DevaArt Studio in the USA.
