Image size in 8 x 10 inches. This was an experiment for using ink to tone and create a background. Basically, I "borrowed" my wifes ink pads (that she uses for cardmaking) one night when she wasn't home. I rolled a few colors of ink using one of her rollers; dark brown, lighter brown, and rusty color rolled vertically. Applied a couple coats of Colorfix primer over the ink after it dried- which was fast by the way. A little bit of pastel over that, but much of the ink is still visable in the background. The purpose of this background was to have a more abstract background, using "old fashioned or antique looking" colors to go along with the antique bike. And I needed to "ground" the bike by adding the illusion of a road, and added in some slight reflection for fun. Hope you like it.
