The 2nd of a series all based on the same model, this artwork was about letting go of control through the choice of tools, method, and speed of completion for the artist. A bamboo dip pen applied each line of india ink; as the tool used up ink, the artist was left with a fainter, thinner line. In this work, those lines were left as they came. Both ink and watercolor washes followed the ink work, with focus on free-styling the background washes and stars. A blow dryer was used between layers to direct ink and watercolor drips and drops where ever they would go. The artwork was painted onto 100% cotton Arches hot press paper, and is matted to fit a 16x20 inch frame.
