This week I played some more with adding alcohol inks to the encaustic. I bought some white alcohol ink and was excited to try it, but found it was too thick to get it to move and create a fun texture. I will thin it with additional alcohol and hopefully I will get it to flow without losing too much opacity. The white ink doesn't show in this painting because I totally covered it up with more wax. The other inks colors are used only in the lower portion.
This could be read as a type of landscape or as a pure abstract. I've played with creating a feeling of agitation and chaos juxtaposed with more soothing colors and shapes.
