This small painting is a 9×6 and is an experimental art piece. It has a complex work process. I made use of gold leaf, Angelina fiber and several layers of various tissue papers. I was again inspired by late Fall. All the leaves and brilliancy are now gone and you see a lonely , beautiful leaf every now and then. How quickly the seasons and life get away from one and how ephemeral beauty is.
This painting went through a lot of changes. I finally resorted to gesso with tissue paper. The last layer is done in gold acrylic.
The inspiration came from our October skies. They look turquoise and the leaves and trees below are like a somewhat autumn that is gone.
The work is on watercolor paper to fit a 16×20.
I am being inspired by the beautiful colors of autumn which are beginning to fade out. However, I came about this painting the round about way as usual.
I wet the paper and drop the colors. After the painting dried, I spiked it up a bit with colored pencils. I made ink lines with micron pens and did the design. I thought the painting needed some more flare and I drew the white lines with a color pencil. Added are black lines and circles.
I imagined how autumn may be in a city as I am not in one. You, however, can see what you will.
This painting didn’t start out to look like stain glass, but after working on it a while, it looked like what you may see through a stain glass window n Fall.
Again the painting went through many changes and I painted over a sheet of tissue paper. I made lines that had been previously made by pressing Saran wrap on wet paint. I wasn’t happy with what I saw and proceeded to add color and lines.
This painting is on paper. I has gone through multiple changes. It has lots of layers. The last one had tissue paper painted over several layers that had been let dry with Saran wrap . I wasn’t happy with the lines and proceeded with the tissue. I painted several layers with bright colors. As I am surrounded by colorful trees, the painted reminded of Fall leaves falling as they are being blown by the wind.
I am, of course, inspired by autumn and the leaves changing all around me. However, there is more to it. I am intrigued by what I don’t see and imagine-maybe it is just a feeling of the mystery of nature . Enjoy the moment with me in this color land of the mind. Poetisize if you are a poet.
The painting is a rectangle 24×18 inches. I started with Japanese Awagami sheets which I colored with light washes of fluid acrylics. After this layered dried, I went back to the studio and decided to add more color, I also gave it a coating of iridescent varnish. I put on more color and started to paste pieces of Angelina fiber and glass beads. I made a few half circles with a brush.
