Sketchbook weeds

Sketchbook pages of weeds and plants at the back. I’ve been trying to get more out of the ballpoint pen, painting with the isopropanol. It goes right through the paper and sometimes looks better. The one on the left here is made that way.

Here we are. This is happening to us. We’re heading to death. We now know we’re living in an enormous universe which is extremely old. What do you make of it? What do you think this is? And what do you think we should do with it?”

This one is drawn in ballpoint pen (2 types), gel pen and isopropanol. This time though, I squeezed the ink out of the pen with a pair of pliers, and painted with it direct on the paper, mixed with a bit of isopropanol. You don’t need much.

Dreaming I was sleeping

“I was thinkin’ about the things that Rosie said.
I was dreaming I was sleeping in Rosie’s bed.”

Another experiment using ballpoint pen and alcohol (isopropanol) sprayed here and there.
