Today’s “Adora Blossom” in ink and tea on watercolour paper was created by London-Based fine artist Carne Griffiths. Carne wrote : “Like plants and flowers we watch them grow and blossom”. Working primarily with calligraphy ink, graphite and liquids, such as tea, brandy, vodka and whiskey he draws and then manipulates the drawn line. After graduating from Maidstone college of art, Carne served an apprenticeship and worked as a gold wire embroidery designer for 12 years, hence floral pattern, repetition and flow play a large part in his work. His DeviantArt porfolio, his facebook, twitter accounts. Here he is documenting the process of creating the piece on his blog.
In lieu of payment for his work, Carne asked that I make a donation to Charity: water, a non-profit organization bringing clean and safe drinking water to people in developing nations, which I readily did. Thank you so much, Carne!
