Another drawing where I've used a color background. Floating marks. A dancing cosmos. I made another set of tools. I'm starting to get some new kind of layering here. Also understanding how to create some additional softness.
Back to another kind of thinking.
Working with the same palette that I used in my winter twins series that I completed last year around this time. The recent snow brought me back to my minimalist tendencies. It's wonderful to think about all that stuff just under the surface that a crust of translucent frozen snow obscures. Some little bits break the surface and indicate their full form.
Getting the drawings up on the blog is sometimes the most difficult part of the project.
I feel as though I should say something about the process each time. Something discovered. Some difficulty. Some revelation.
Another set of brushes and a refinement of the color palette.
I used some new patterns to create a new marks from familiar gestures.
I found these marks to be different than I had anticipated. They created different patterns with each small change. This was really good fun and didn't happen quite as fast as the final drawing appears.
In my last drawing I made a new tool that created a whole different mark. I embraced that new tool and made this drawing. Experimenting with a few more marks and keeping the palette limited.
