More backgrounds (suminagashi)


Suminagashi is  a Japanese method of marbling paper (google the definition). I adapt it to make backgrounds using water and the wonder of coincidence!

The curious round marks are made by dropping 100% isopropyl alcohol (dropwise) onto very wet paint.


six (something is lurking - a hippo?)

seven (can you see the bird?)

eight - may be better at portrait angle

nine (the eye has it)
