I'm really having fun doing these black & white studies. After a few pages in my sketchbook, I've come up with a process.
I start by using an "ink blot" technique to provide the first layer. (This is where you squirt black acrylic ink onto one side of the page and then close the book to repeat a reverse image on the next side of the page, creating a spread).
Then, I'm using stencils with black ink. Then I add collage.
It's amazing how adding each step in the process informs the next step. Very freeing and fun!
