I had fun with acrylic ink drips today. I dropped them on wet paper. The first one was a red splash that made a sunburst (if the sun were that color). The other inks were metallic; I didn’t form any pattern consciously.
The ‘sun’ inspired a horizon line. In keeping with the iridescent nature of the inks, I used my watercolors with pigments infused with fine mica, to imitate the sheen of metal.
The result is below, my Alien Landscape, complete with blobby life forms.
