New Year, Paintings on Wood, and Quink.

So my new years resolution to keep my blog updated has not gone exactly to plan (can't believe we're already in February)..but anyway I shall do much better from now on...

Above is a mixed media painting I did on wood last year (the top image is a section of it)... I did several of these for the Treasure exhibition. I enjoyed this way of working, mixing different textures and words and images. And wood is a really nice surface to work on

Below are some recent ink paintings, using Parker Quink.. I just think it has a really nice blue/ brown/black variations within it. And it reflects my January wintery mood pretty well.
