New year, old directions
As I began to start on a new, small piece based on things I liked about the collage and drawing pictured first, I fired up the overhead transparency projector to transfer the drawing to a canvas. I did so with a yellow watercolor crayon and, while the visual impact is hard to pick up in the second image below, I was immediately drawn to the subtlety of the yellow cartoon on the beige, raw canvas. Some studies have ensued as a result, so stay tuned for more there.
Anyway, going with purple undertones and some taping, and using my surface to sketch a bit as well which is new… I’ve also been thinking a lot at the mark making in the fourth image.
Clearly this one has taken on a retro-’80s palette.
