In some ways this week’s Experiment in Blue is an experiment in two ways. Sure, I’m playing with blues here, but I’m also playing with scale. I’ve decided that next year — 2017 — is going to be my year to go big. In fact, I just moved my fine art to a new studio where I’ll have more space to work on larger paper and panels in preparation for the two shows I’l be having in the next two years. For the record, my illustration studio will remain where it is. I’m super excited about this opportunity.
Monday night I had some time to myself and since I hadn’t yet made a blue piece for the week, I ventured out to my studio to make something. Just a few days before, I’d purchased a pack of large 22×30 inch watercolor paper and decided to start there. I began by creating a pattern of circles across the paper and then turned them into giant flowers using black ink. It was messy working that large (I’m definitely embracing messy), but I had a blast and got lost in finishing.
Watch out for more larger pieces from me!
Happy Wednesday, friends!
