    Found on Pinterest: Ian Dingman

    The “picked for you feature” on Pinterest can be pretty hit-or-miss – at least, it is for me. But here’s one recommendation they got right: the art of Ian Dingman. His simple, often monochromatic ink and watercolor works are really arresting. I especially love the series of night swimming-themed images. Above, Falling Through the Night, sold.

    Waterbirds, $120.

    Timing, $160.

    Mirroring, sold.

    See all of his for-sale artwork here.
