Ink Bottles

For some reason, I woke up this morning thinking about these bottles of watercolour ink. I bought them a couple of years ago, tried them out, and put them away. Out of the blue (groan...that's a lousy pun), I just felt like trying them again today.

I loved it! The colours are very pure, and somehow much juicier than the ones I mix from tubes. I loved dripping one colour into another and watching a third very-bright colour emerge. And it was fun to smoosh them together into browns and greens.

You can see that I had to invent some ivy so I could get the greens in there. Anyway, I ended up with some exciting "accidents." I'll definitely play with these colours again soon.
