Carne Griffiths’ amazing Ink & Tea portrait drawings — beautifully rendered with incredible details!

UK-based illustrator Carne Griffiths works with unusual mediums such as tea, brandy, vodka, whiskey, graphite and calligraphy ink. The striking images, featured here, are his latest drawings mostly done with ink and tea on Bockingford watercolor paper. He is a meticulous and detail-oriented artist, creating amazing portraits adorned with floral landscape and free-flowing artistic lines. He says he is  “fascinated by the flow of line and the ‘invisible lines’ that connect us to the natural world.”

Enjoy this extraordinary artwork!

Artist Statement:

Working primarily with calligraphy inks, graphite and liquids, such as tea, brandy and vodka Griffiths’ fascination with drawing focuses on the creation and manipulation of the drawn line. Images explore human, geometric and floral forms, in a combination of both literal and abstract translation and in response to images and situations encountered in daily life. Images are recorded in a dreamlike sense onto the page where physical boundaries are unimportant. His work creates a journey of escapism which focuses on scenes of awe and wonder, projecting a sense of abandonment and inviting the viewer to share and explore this inner realm.
