What a fabulously messy time I had painting ink textures this weekend. If you’re one of those creative people who can’t paint ‘inside the lines’; see a boundary you have to break through, then you’ll understand the benefits of covering your work area with plastic! With protective gloves donned I set about painting with ink.I used various techniques and tools, including cling film (food wrap), cloths, brushes, roller (brayer) and various mediums, to make marks. There were some lovely results too.
Time simply flashed past and by early evening I had about 80 painted ink pieces of art strewn across the floor and available surfaces to dry.
- Not all of the pieces made it to the scanning stage, about 65 made it that far. Scanning that number took quite some time.
- Not all 65 scanned pieces will make it through to Photoshop or into fine art texture sets.
Painted Ink Selection
With over 60 scanned painted ink images to vet and develop into textures, this part of the process will be done in stages.
Some will be discarded, others will become completely different types/styles of fine art textures – this is all part of the creative process [artistic license is allowed].
Each White Lane Studio fine art texture is created with many hours of love. Our textures, overlays and backgrounds start life as a hand painted art piece, a hand drawn sketch, or an interesting photograph taken by photographer Cousin, Timothy Huggett, or by myself.
