I have painted 31 different abstract ink paintings, and I mainly related to the foil technique. For me it was important to create many different structures with only a few resources and to make each painting look different. I used Ink and Acrylic Ink and occasionally a fineliner. I’m glad the Inktober Challenge is over now. It is quite exhausting to do a painting every day (or almost every day). I think I won`t be back next year, but take part in the challenge every two years. Doreen.
