More Bookmarks!

Wanted to play with brushstrokes again. Just brushstrokes.

Grabbed watercolor paper and taped a few strips in place.

Discovery:  brushstrokes captivate me not solely because of their texture and movement but also because of their interplay and juxtaposition with color, value, edges, and composition.

So … I didn't stick to just brushstrokes.

And now, more bookmarks!  Wonder what books they'll mark.

  1. Like these ... the three-dimensional quality of the first one is really neat.

  2. That inspiration came from someone else's art. Now I've got real cherries in the fridge—could paint some more from a "live" model.
