Happy New Year 2012

Well here's my first ink blot of the year...I did this one with my Sketch group this evening...I used a dropper and Burnt Umber ink....Same process as before, I taped down the pages so they wouldn't run into other pages...then I dropped the ink with a of my fellow artists handed some sort of scrubbie type of packaging and I used it to create the wiped effects you see on both pages....I said the blots reminded me of a tornado so I shaped this one into a tornado scene....basically just winged it like the others, right there in the kitchen.  Looks pretty cool in person....the scanned image doesn't do the other page justice, the plastic scrubby stuff made it look like it had an antiqued texture that looked so good I didn't want to do anything over it.
