Ghost towers

Saturday, 14 May 2011

A few weeks ago a friend gave me a small can of Bistre, a pigment for making paint or ink. She gave it to me because she sort of pitied me using coffee. I need not to be pitied in any way, but surely not for using coffee to paint. I do that because i love it! The colour of coffee is extremely beautiful to my eyes. The colour of the Bistre is much darker and not really my taste at all. But i don’t like wasting a gift, so i have been struggling with the pigment to come up with something that i do like.
Here are some drawings that i call “Ghost Towers”:
