October 2019 Work

A few new pieces

Finished this drawing up recently, it had sat in the drawer half finished for six months. Color study using very optical colors. Technically orange and blue sit across from each other on the color wheel. The blue triangles are a collage element, Arches watercolor paper painted a bright blue.

These three have been in the drawer for a few months but I have shown them to no one. Very Franz Kline derived but conceptually different. I am using the very mat black acrylic paint I have been drawing with for the last year. It changes them as any brush marks completely disappear and the image become purely graphic.

I had the yen to make a few botanical drawings too. I think it was fall moving in that made me want to capture the lush summer that had passed. I worked back into three of them with white.

This is my newest drawing, made just this week. I plan some variations on this theme.

Have I shown you this? Made earlier this summer. I made the drawn part of the piece bleed off the top and bottom.
