Process: Ink Splatters

I'm currently working on a photo series involving ink splatter overlays on top of my photography.  My favorite technique for finding the perfect splatter is to take two brushes full of ink/paint, and tap them together.  This creates more of a speckled look which is really fun.  I also find that I have more control to keep the ink from going everywhere when I do this.  Here are a few behind-the-scene photos.
 




Here's an instagram preview of a photo from the series.

I can't wait to post the rest of this shoot!  It should be up by tomorrow. 

Also, I've been listening to a lot of jazz this past month - specifically Chet Baker.  What been your go-to music this month?

  2. What perfect music to go along with your splatter-processed photo. I love the red to complement the composition, or maybe I love the composition complementing the red splatters. ;>)

  6. This may seem like a dumb question, but how did you make the small ink-splatter paintings look so big as a backdrop? As always, your work is so inspiring!
