Ink blot documentation

Experimented with pouring ink and water onto blotting paper and then watercolour paper.  This followed on from a series of drawings where I had used an inked rotating wheel with spikes to create holes in the blotting paper and allowed ink blots to randomly form. I drew connecting lines to the punched holes to create a network across the paper.

 

The series Blots and shadows used a grid as a structure to support random sized ink blots with echoing drawn shadows to lift the blots off the paper.
