Inktober 2018: Week 1

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018

Autumn winds are blowing and fire season is almost over, which means not only October, Halloween, and Pumpkin Spice, but Inktober! I’m doing one ink drawing per day all month, pulling from a number of prompt lists. This year I’m doing everything in the Artist’s Trading Card size of 3.5″x2.5″ and sticking to black and white with the occasional cheat of grey.

Concentric 2

Wednesday, October 10th, 2018

Concentric 2 by Amy Crook, abstract art in pale grey and vanishing violet

Concentric 2, 7″x5″ ink and watercolor on paper

Pale, pale, and bright spots of gold.

The soft grey ink wash provides a swirling backdrop to concentric rings of near-invisible violet, the designs only showing up when the light hits them just so. A bright, warm gold is scattered among the rest, like sunshine throwing physical droplets into a cool, rainy puddle.

Frame this little painting and put it on your desk, and you can always have a bit of secret shine to take a break and meditate on the hidden beauties of the world.

Above, you can see the art up close, turned to catch the light and reveal bright golds and hidden violets. Below, the art is tucked in a frame, just waiting to come live on your desk.

Abandonment

Monday, October 8th, 2018

Abandonment by Amy Crook, shadowy abstract city ruins in front of a stormy sky

Abandonment, 7″x5″ ink and watercolor on paper

Often the skies come first and then the foreground goes in to match, but this time the ruins grew up out of the ashes of avoidance, and the purple clouds came rolling in later.

Spiky, burnt-out buildings lean into one another, smudged with smoke and abandoned by everyone but the carrion birds.

More ruins for a world on fire, but hey, at least they’re pretty.

Above, you can see the most-intact tower and its circle of carrion birds up close and personal. Below, the bleak landscape sits in a frame, like a window to a ruined world.

Whimsical Doldrums 2

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

Whimsical Doldrums 2 by Amy Crook, loose ink-brushed buildings smudged with color under a grey-blue rain

Whimsical Doldrums 2, 10″x8″ watercolor on Fluid watercolor paper

These particular doldrums have a bit more color and less stormy skies than the last set, but never fear, there’s still a secret cat.

The heavens rain down on this strange city full of everything from crystal towers to wobbling skyscrapers, a motley of unusual architecture just waiting to bring a smile to your space.

Where would you hang this to turn someone’s frown upside down?

Above, you can see a few of the buildings up close, their loose ink and soft washes of color bringing delight to the gloom. Below, the painting waits in a frame, hoping for a forever home to grace with its fanciful ways.
