Two of Three



This is the second painting working in the same way I did the previous one of my pour series. I feel that these are too dark but I had to continue with the color palette since I plan to group these. I will have to find a way for the ink to keep it's original bright color. After these three I wiil try with a lighter background and hope the ink reacts differently. The top image is a close up fragment.

Very nice work with these paintings! I see a lot of things, nebulas in space, continents, and cloud formations.

Mango looks like a cool cat!

I love these explorative paintings of yours! The bright orange is fantastic in the second one. I agree, there is a cosmic feeling to these.

Thank you Cynthi and Stoy. I do love to play with these but I have a little trouble keeping the color pure.

I'll have to experiment in a similar technique one day. These are lovely. You have a real skill and feeling for these works.

Do you show and sell them?

Mary said...

Thank you Jeanette! I'm trying to get full control of this medium to go with a bigger format and then have enough for a show. I think you would enjoy doing this. You can start with very small panels.

I like the dark colors very much. Using pure color beside complex greys creates a rich balance. It'll work great in larger formats too.
