Inkblots aren't just for psychology... Just as Leonardo was inspired by the haphazard swirls in marble, and Victor Hugo dribbled coffee and wine on paper to create new imagery, noted artist, printmaker, and Broadway costume painter Margaret Peot takes inkblots to new creative heights with this stunning, hands-on celebration of their beauty and potential. She presents the many insights and techniques she has gained throughout her career from basic tips and information on paper and ink to advanced techniques for transforming inkblots into works of art.
