The india-ink washes are done on "Rise": (This piece is RESERVED.)
I work first in waterproof india ink to establish tones that won't be picked-up by the subsequent gouache color washes. I'm excited to lay in some color on this one!
This soon-to-be painting will be part of my April 2013 solo show "Laid Bare" at La Luz de Jesus Gallery. For more info, to be added to the preview list, or to reserve a piece early, email Matt Kennedy at email@example.com.
