clickables

OK...now that Lynne has unravelled the mystery of making my photos clickable, I feel compelled to re-post my ink drawings so that you can see them full size in more detail. Please click away! Here they are, mounted for cards:

You've got major skills :)

Vanessa said...

Hey that's uber cool! Is that all done with ink? Do you use blotters, droppers, pens? I love the 'click' feature, it really does your work justice!

these are lovely and I'm glad I'm not the only person who doesn't know how to do all these clever things on the blog ;O)

seth said...

Jo Horswill said...

...not going to choose a favorite, because I love them all.
I love the 'clickable' feature.
These special little ink drawings are so dynamic up close...beautiful hand drawn lines Kate...very sensitive.

Robyn said...

Beautiful juicy colours and I love the texture.

mansuetude said...

these are lovely, there is such a sense of nature releasing itself, expanding.

Uschi said...

Ohlalaa, that's one big difference!
So good to see them bigger.
Is it possible to unravel this mystery to me, too??

kate said...

ww...thanks for your enthusiasm!

vanessa...it's all done with ink. Using a dropper, I drop the ink right onto the paper and then use a pallet knife to achive some spontaneous and random shapes of colour. I then add details using toothpicks!

notmassproduced...I know what you mean! So much to learn, so little time!

seth...thanks!

lynne...I'm forever indebted to you! Thanks again for the clickable research that you did!

jo...as I mentioned above, these hand drawn lines are done with toothpicks. I have such a block about painting and drawing that somehow it seems less threatening if I use non-traditional implements.

robyn...thanks for your juicy comments!

mansuetude...it's an honour to have you visit my blog. Yours is amazing! And thanks so much for the comment, put in such a beautiful and insightful way. Seems to me a lot of my work is about very controlled things slowly releasing.

uschi...I thought I was the only person in the blogosphere who didn't know how to do this (as everyone else's photos seem to have the capacity to enlarge) so I didn't think to post an explanation, but you are not the only person who has asked this question. I will post what I know on this Wednesday's post.
