In the Studio : New twins

Two new pieces drying.

Today in the studio I'm working on my two new orange pieces. It's good to be working on paper again. Working with two pieces that will converse with each other. It's already started.

Im very pleased with the tonal aspects ofboth panels. The solid orange is like velvet.

In the Studio : August, One set away

I returned to my studio after a full day to see the red and yellow drawings now that they were dry. I couldn't even make my coffee I had to look at them.

There is a profound difference when the ink dries — the result of the absorbtion. I'm pleasantly surprised. The marks are quite commanding with their little ripples and an occassional bubble. The transperency additive makes the brayer want to slide across the paper — the speed makes a different kind of visual texture and challenges my control to make the mark.
