I’m deep in discovery mode today playing with colorways that are new to me… I have to admit that a few dissonant combos make me cringe but there is also some really juicy exciting color blending here that I’ll definitely be using in the near future. Going to get some coffee and stare at these awhile…
I spent the last three days playing with these cityscape paintings based on a class from the beautiful painter Faith Evans Sills, “Luscious Layered Cityscapes”.
We used gorgeous collage papers as the first layer and colorways and mark making on top based on the colors and patterns of Marrakech, Morocco.
I forgot how much I love love love collage and playing with paper. I’m so energized to paint small again… There is a sharp focus and freeing flow that comes with working small and in a series that is relaxing and feels so vital.
By the way, the title “Zalika Marrakech” is arabic for “Wonderously Beautiful Marrakech”… Can’t wait to travel in the future!
I keep adding paint, turning it, adding collage, more paint, turning it again… Why is this one so arduous?
I think it’s on track again… Calling it a day.
Spray paint! I’m surprised I waited so long to try this. The drips are awesome, the edges are so atmospheric, the colors are vibrant… Can’t wait to add more to this work-in-progress.
One for a dear friend and one just for funsies.
I love doing a companion piece while working on a commission so I can offload extra paint or have something to work on while the other is drying… I can be very impatient but these keeps me moving and avoids the muddy looking paint that comes from working both cool and warm colors while still wet.
Thank goodness for paint on days like today.
Playing with inks, masking, spheres and scribbles…
