Really digging these portraits by artist Carne Griffiths done in mixes of ink, tea, and alcohol. His work features a gorgeous mixture of translucent colors perfectly splashed in a mix of tea stain sepias and yellows which leak of the page. Flora and fauna intersperse perfectly with portraits of far away women. It's always amazing to me to see inks and watercolors walk such a fine line of controlled chaos. The result is so beautiful in the right hands. On A side note note, I seriously doubt I could paint with whiskey, after a few hours I'd have a blank page and a half empty whiskey bottle.
