Inky bliss

I have this book about an artist whose work I admire and adore, Katsuji Wakisaka. It’s mostly in Japanese so I mostly look at the pictures– which are incredibly inspiring even without text. There’s one section of the book called “10,000 postcards to His Wife” that is pretty amazing- and recently got me wanting to do something similar. The photos of stacks of little painted postcards are so tantalizing– I’m not sure I’ll get to 10,000 but it sure feels amazing to be painting again. I’m using my absolute fave, India ink, the blackest black. I’m using inks for colour too- I love their shiny finish and the gorgeous saturated colour. Here are some from this week- I really love that turnip!
