Ink on canvas

I wanted to try a larger piece with ink so I stretched up some cotton canvas and started this piece. I have been trying to push the portraits of the Tuol Sleng victims to something less figurative, more representational as Im not sure if  more detailed, coloured images are working.  This was ment to have more colour and detail but I left it as it was, I let the ink sink in to the cotton and quite like the effect, it certainty looks creepier, it wont work on linen.


I read on some forums that ink and cotton dont really go together unless the cotton is primed as the ink gets messy and soaks into the fabric but I think that will look pretty good so that’ll be the next thing on my list to try.
