Alcohol Ink – “My Secret Garden”

Dee Van Houten -
Painting is a pigment of my imagination…
If I can create art, then everything will be good…

Secret Garden: lyrical impressionistic alcohol ink art by Dee Van Houten is a one-of-a-kind original  artwork. As I paint, it seems to be controlled chaos that takes over as it just depends where this wonderful fluid medium takes me. There are a lot of very subtle things going on in the background (dragonflies, butterflies, delicate flowers seem to just appear). In this painting, I used various shades of greens and yellows with touches of orange, purples and aqua.

My alcohol ink paintings are acid-free, highly pigmented, permanent and dry very quickly. This medium is used on non-porous substrates such as glass, tile, plastics, metals and glossy papers and the colors appear to just float on top since this type of substrate does not absorb the ink. Sold unframed. Image size: 9″ x 12″

I spray the finished piece with a clear protective coating that will not disturb the alcohol ink. I then use a thin layer of acrylic UV polymer varnish for a final layer of protection.

This original alcohol ink painting was created at DevaArt Studio.
