When I was in London recently I bought a bar of chinese ink and a winsor & Newton 8 colours set of inks. All of this weekend has been spent playing with these my new toys. Here are the first 3 one I made. All are 2.5"x3.5" ACEOs or ATC (artist trading cards). media is as I said ink only on quality watercolour paper. Price is usually $10 for my aceos. They are not totally original since I used instructional books when painting them. Practicing in this manner is by the way an honored tradition within chinese brush painting.

Pink Orchid. I have not yet found out how to use the ink properly to get the colours I want. I guess it is practice, practice, practice.
