Original Ink Paintings by JC Strong
It's been a busy week and working on these ink paintings was cathartic. It brings me back to the basics of making marks on paper.
I'm a big fan of traditional Chinese and Japanese brush painting on "rice" paper, created with a ground ink stick. My preference is liquid sumi ink and working on 140 lb watercolor paper.
These paintings are a combination of memory and enjoying a day at the park between rainy days in California.
