Ink workshop on

Kangaroo Island

My usual way of transportation to the workshops is by car, though today I got to take the Ferry, from Cape Jervis to Kangaroo Island. What a great way to start the day!

Glenda is waiting for me at the harbour which is only a few minutes drive from the gallery. Today we are learning a few abstract painting techniques with some floral (or shell, or fruits for some!) elements.

The gold leaf technique seems to be quite popular leading to a lot of waowing during the demonstration. The detailing with white ink shows itself to be also enjoyed by most. Many participants experiment different ways to approach the paper layering technique.

Results in the afternoon vary from abstract work to floral painting to pure experimentation to subtle shades of gray or contrasted black and white results.

While it was chatty in the morning, the afternoon is a lot more quiet with everyone focusing on getting the job done! Only a few minutes are left before the end of the day and there are still more freshly painted background waiting in the sun to dry for the final layer of ink.
