Creating the palette-triangles are the first step in how a finished painting will look. So for this painting I am making palette-triangles from original paintings painted differently from previous ones. Directional lines are still present, but color is applied in spots along the directional lines. In addition, the paint is applied transparently showing the character of the paper.
The true nature of the painting will become clear as the palette-triangles are affixed to meet seamlessly.
Have been working steadily on Umbra. An unusual color palette for me.
The original color palette triangles have an india ink-"drawn" or "written" under layer placed in a vertical direction. That is countered by the horizontal direction of color. The india ink under layer emerges unexpectedly.
Here are two details of the new painting I am working on. A painting starts with the initial creation of palette-triangles to determine color, texture, and movement. Palette-triangles are created throughout the process, and are defined by the direction of the painting, conversely, new palette-triangles further define the painting -- a process of discovery and surprise.
Here is just a section of the Untitled Work that I am currently working on. This is a subtle painting using a range of blue/lavender juxtaposed with brown/copper--a set of complementary colors. (Subtlety does not make for great photos.)
In addition, this painting is 30 x 30 inches in a single panel, the largest one panel painting I have worked on. Because of the difficulty to physically reach the center sections, I have begun this painting there.
