Gum and Ink Cuttlefish
Sepia Apama (Giant Cuttlefish)
Sepia Apama (Giant Cuttlefish)
All 4 of these pieces used  Gum Arabic with Acrylic ink and colored pencil on illustration board. The technique entailed layering Gum Arabic on pieces of the board that you wanted to remain lighter and painting over the entire board with ink. I went in after washing off the Gum Arabic with water and refined the pieces with ink and colored pencils.
