Joshua Tree Black Ink Paintings by Mark W. McGinnis

From the research done on our two week stay at Joshua Tree National Park in January,  I have created the following eight black ink paintings. They are a departure from my usual black ink painting style. I have combined elements of my more naturalistic style with the tradition of Chinese and Japanese “splashed ink” style. The free, expressive brushwork combined with more controlled representation forms a contrast that was very enjoyable to produce.

All paintings are 9″ X 12″, hand ground black ink on mulberry paper mounted on Ampersand Claybord.
