It is difficult to get dark areas with alcohol ink. On this "Sunflower"
I masked off the stems to make them stand our against the darks. I also masked the sunflower and the leaves. Then I poured the inks with very little Ranger Blending Solution, after removing the masking medium, I colored in the light areas. This is painted on 11X14 YUPO. "Legion Paper" distributed my Yupo. Check Legion Paper out. They supply many different art papers and I consider them the top of the line.
