January Stream

What a gorgeous January day for a little plein air with ink by the stream!  With temps in the 50s - this day was a gift not to waste!  I am using just 3 Diamine inks from the 2022 Inkvent Calendar - Yulelog, Bliss, and Three Kings, with a tiny bit of One More Sleep for that cool violet blue in the water.  After floating in water, I drop in the ink, allowing it move and blotting where I need it to stop.  As one mass is drying, I work in another, careful to hold my painting level - or all masses will run south! It sure is fun to play with these bold colors - perhaps I'll add a few to my plein air line up! Painting number 3676 in 3676 days and day 28 of the #stradaeasel challenge.
