DEVELOP Visual Experimentation – Brush and Ink Writing

These were done while I waited for some inclement weather, with watercolours and brushes on paper in various stages of dampness. I like the effect but I think this would be better with something that has a more intense colour, perhaps an acrylic ink, which will be my next experiment.

I’m also worried about how this method effects legibility. Hopefully a higher contrast ink will help to resolve this.

The other thing I tried was using letter stamps and ink on paper. Some was stamped on dry, some on wet/damp paper, and some was stamped on dry and then I added water later.
