Foraged Ink Landscapes

Some colors I recently made have inspired a few new pieces.

Earlier this fall was poke-berry season, whose fruits ooze an astounding magenta when freshly squeezed, and mellow into a rich russet-burgundy as the ink oxidizes.

Also discovered some nice earth colors in the silty runoff of various parking lots. When combined with the copper oxide, walnut, rust, and acorn iron inks, some nice combinations occur.
