When I first read about Margaret Peot's book "Inkblot"--I wanted to buy the book. Unfortunately it was out of print and the copies available were selling for $700.00. I kept on checking amazon and I was pleasantly surprised that it was back in print. I ordered a copy immediately.
I started by folding in half a piece of watercolor paper and re-opening the paper so it was flat. Next I dropped acrylic ink on the right side of the crease. I then folded the watercolor paper in half and gently pressed on the top of the watercolor paper so the ink would spread. I opened the paper and this is what I created.
I let the paper dry before I proceeded to the next step. Once the ink was dry, I started to look for image out of the ink blots. What I discovered was a elephant. I used a Sharpie to do a contour drawing of the elephant. Next I started dropping in watercolor until I was satisfied with the image.
