Like Fire– many layers of acrylic ink, watercolour, ink pen on paper.
This piece is inspired by the poem Like Fire by thephilosophersotherstone on Tumblr:
autumn paints the leaves
in memories of blazing sun
darkening trees shrouded
in red, gold, and rust
tiny solar flares dance
among branches and limbs
as the cycles of life
calm down all around us
through darkening days
and chilling nights
lights play in our hearts
calling echoes of summer

I definitely recommend checking out his other wonderful writing.
I was busy with various things yesterday so I didn’t have time to upload yesterday’s Inktober piece. I decided to upload both yesterday’s and today’s ink pieces together.
A small ink piece on an off cut of cardboard- it’s starting to feel like Autumn here in the UK finally- I wanted to reflect this.
I created this drawing on a collaged page in my Moleskine- the page is covered with train ticket scans and gesso as a base for the top ink.

Piece for the second song on the album Crash Site. The pieces in this series were commissioned for a music album by C.J Kane.
The second image shows the image with text as it will be shown.
The main visual ideas suggested for this piece were ‘Pine trees (forest) under night sky – white/grey/black/blue/green.’
After some experimentation with different colour combinations I decided to keep the background white- partially to compliment the other pieces made for the album and partially to allow textures to be seen. I felt that it was better for the overall look of the artwork to suggest the idea of a cold evening/night with textures and dark hues rather than flooding the image with black.
I also decided to add the plane silhouette to both complete the gap between the tree tops and reference the album title itself.
