This modernist painting utilizes handmade walnut ink from my own recipe. The tonal range from amber to Van Dyke brown comes from applying thin washes mixed with acrylic in the underpainting. The ink and acrylic washes are applied over a pigment ink print on photo rag mounted to a wood panel. The sides are black and it comes ready to hang.

Getting to Know Justin

Justin Simcik enjoys experimental and non-traditional applications of paint. Instead of using paintbrushes, he drips it, airbrushes it, and trowels it onto the canvas. Sometimes he even uses a squeegee or mechanical invention. When he’s not painting, he enjoys taking photographs of nature while vacationing and hiking. These photographs become his sketchbook and inform his paintings. He currently lives in California. Fun fact: he’s been giving himself his own haircuts for the last 20 years.
