ATMOSPHERE & SHAPES, Day 4

My investigation here involved exploring how to create an atmosphere of quiet soft dense fog.

I think the investigation needs to remain open!

I did considerable veiling—still takes a push from me—but using a paint knife in combination with painting over collage pieces seems to make for a rough patchy quality that isn't at all what I was after. This looks like fog and starch having a fist fight!

I do like the perky little triangles and circles with their saturated colors, though.

  1. hahahaha, Love "fog and starch having a fist fight!" Thank you for the laughter Dotty! I think I see a Roman robot coming out of the mist. Wonder what he's up to!

  2. Hi Dotty!
    So good to keep experimenting even when you think: the fog is dense...

    Have a lovely thanksgiving, again!

    1. It's all a grand experiment, isn't it?!

      Thanks for the Thanksgiving wishes. My family and I have been reminiscing today, as we often do, about when we lived in the Netherlands and went to a service for Americans at the Pieterskerk in Leiden; the Pieterskerk is where Pilgrims from England worshipped after they'd left England and were in the Netherlands temporarily before sailing for the New World to settle.

    2. Yes you told me. The Pieterskerk is a beautiful church!

  3. Sorry I don't see any "starch"! I see a lively conversation between the triangles and the hidden circles.... they want a few more in their collection!! Hope you had a pleasant Thanksgiving!

    1. Hmm, so maybe these are blown glass decorative pieces nestled into shredded paper in a gift box of some sort, and others will be join them momentarily to fill the box : )
