Question for the artist?

Artist's description:

Eye catching and unique piece which looks stunning on a pale background as this enhances the contrast of the black ink with bright bleach.
This is a still life of beach objects that were placed abstractly on a wall; they were hung down off a wall creating an interesting still life to study.
I used quink ink which I covered the whole paper in and then began drawing with a stick using bleach. The stick made interesting markings and scratches and of course using the bleach as a sort of ink made bright white markings in the quink ink already applied. I layered marks on to the piece using the stick and occasionally a brush. Finally I used Indian ink to create darker parts over the bleach beacuse indian ink will not disappear even with bleach.
Please feel free to click the 'Contact' link on the right hand side of the page if you have any questions you would like to ask, I will be happy to answer.
