Whirls Revised with Colour

I originally shared this piece on the blog a couple months ago, and at the time I wasn’t convinced it was finished. It needed something but I wasn’t sure what that was. I’d originally intended to add colour to the piece but was hesitant to do so because I was afraid I would ruin it in the painting process. I recently convinced myself to go for it, and painted it using blue acrylic ink.

This is exactly what the piece needed. The colour has brought the design and idea behind it, of whirls and eddies in water, to life.
