Black Ink Improvisations

Presented here are a small selection of my black ink improvisations. Where colour has been applied, this has been achieved by digitising the black and white image (scanning) so they could then be processed using my favoured graphic design software and a wide range of texture elements (photos and filters).

Like with musical improvisation, applying a free-form approach to artwork often relies on the ability to adapt errors so it appears that they were intended. By using only black ink, with no pencil sketch preparation, I force myself to commit to initial ideas. So, if something doesn't go quite to plan, it's a case of either make it work or bin it and start again. There are no second chances unless I edit a scanned image in software, and in respect of this process, that always feels like cheating.
