PARISMAMUSE- on my way home
Miss Doodle - "ten little..."
This is a watercolour painting, an experiment, wet in wet on 56 x 76 cm (20.5 x 28.3 in) paper.
I draw the poppies with a fine ink pen on the paper, put the paper under water, waited a few minutes and put the colour on, just let the color flow.
This picture is taken in weak light, so the colors here are not as bright as on the original.
I think that the fine graphics, i.e. the fine ink lines are disturbing me most in this big painting. They make no sense. Next time, if I want graphics like that, I'll experiment with black ink and a brush, that will make sense.
Let's call this a happy accident.
So. I decide to chop this up.
In little pieces, ATC-sized. Hereunder you can see all the pieces (40 little cards).
In the very first set you can see the three cards I used to make the "magnified" paintings of my previous post, where I decided to enhance the black lines, so that they pleasently agree and support the whole composition...
Of course, the watercolour reacts differently and imposes it's own rules, patterns, rythm, so that the outcome of the magnified peace is, again, something entirely else. Something new.
