If you are looking for an art form that is whimsical, intuitive, relaxing, loose, spontaneous, and downright fun, this is the medium for you. Alcohol inks are vividly colored dyes dissolved in alcohol. They create a depth, flow, and vibrancy of color not easily achievable with water-based paints. Watch them come alive! Use them on any non-absorbent surface – ceramic tiles, synthetic paper, plastic, glass, metal, gourds, etc.

    I would like to meet another artist here in Sonoma. I am currently painting again with watercolors and loving it and yet there is of course so much to learn everyday. You Tube has been and is an excellent source of ‘learning’…..I haven’t got a car so am unable to attend any meeting in Santa Rosa. I live very close to the Library in town of Sonoma – on Oregon Street. To have a chat….once and awhile with someone who is an advanced watercolorist (I am not nor am I a beginner) would be so nice !
