How I make my abstract ink paintings (work in progress video)

After my short break of being internet and distraction free I'd like to share a work in progress video I made on how I make my abstract paintings (or at least one specific abstract painting called Blush). As you can see in video process is rather simple and technically undemanding (you don't actually need to know how to paint or draw you just need to have a passion for spilling ink on wet paper and patience to doodle a lot of tiny details hehe). I start working on my art by creating ink underpainting, dipping a brush into ink and then spreading it on wet paper to get interesting effects. After the underpainting is dry I continue to add details, either by ink and brush again or by using gel ink pens. I rely on my intuition to guide me on what to do next and I finish working on the piece when "I feel I had enough". It all makes a very relaxing and meditative process :)

For those who are interested materials I've used in video: Fabriano watercolour Artistico traditional white 300 g/m2 paper (in 23x30.5cm size), KOH-I-NOOR colored drawing ink, Sakura Gelly Rolls, uni-ball Signo white gel ink pen and various generic brushes.
