I had a lot of fun with this one. Stayed up all night working on it, and then worked on it some more. It’s surprising how long these little paintings take, but also quite enjoyable. And it feels good to be completing a few small things to show you. This makes my 12th piece of the year, so far; I have 9 more studies for larger works that I probably won’t be posting until the larger works are done to my satisfaction. Patience. 🙂
New Work on Paper: The Caterpillar’s Lair
Here is another small work on paper. A bit fanciful, plus I was introducing a dark background, which is a bit unusual for my work. Just trying stuff. 🙂
New Work on Paper: Hippie Nouveau
So far this year, I’ve been working on some small studies for larger works. I may post the studies when the larger works are done, but that could be awhile.
In the meantime, here is a small watercolor pencil painting on paper from a couple of days ago. I started from the point of continuing my thoughts/impressions of Bontecou, but decided to aim for a simpler design and a slightly subdued (for me) palette. I love how this piece turned out!
Another New Organics Painting: Organic Sketch 26
This time, I interwove the layers. I love how it turned out!
New Painting: Organics Sketch 25
My twenty-fifth sketch in this series! Two layers of web in this one, plus a ribbon with balls. I love the colors!
New Painting: Organics Sketch 24
This is another painting in which the web may look like many layers but is all one piece.
