These drawings are made using a variety of artist-made or found vintage inks. The handmade inks include oak gall, walnut, and acorn-iron, hand picked and rendered from the artist’s farm, as well as studio-made copper oxide and titanium white. The vintage inks are mid-20th century, and have been rescued from our farm storage outbuildings.
