Canadian painter Glen Ronald creates stunning monochromatic ink blot paintings that resemble realistic photographs. Inspired by the chaos of the natural environment, Ronald's paintings capture the beauty and spirit of wild creatures.

To make his intricate ink blot paintings, Ronald uses a variety of different pens, as well as acrylic inks and Indian ink. He achieves the ink blots through the use of several unusual techniques, which include splashing the ink and spraying the canvas with water. Ronald then channels the chaos of the ink blots into intricate designs. Some of his most impressive ink blot paintings feature wild animals such as elephants, wolves, whales and lions.

Ronald's monochromatic ink blot illustrations manage to channel chaotic elements into beautiful works of art.
