MOSTLY MONOCHROME, Day 9

I work with yellows today. Paint a start and use a fine line ink applicator bottle to scribble/spill some contrasting black on the page.

Quick. Intuitive.


Mostly Monochrome—start #9

Cover the start 100% using the same palette, using a knife and adding some texture via sgraffito. Again, quick intuitive flow.

Then I step back to assess and make a few decisions. I manifest my decisions with a final burst of ease and flow.

Love the simplicity and graphic look to this piece.

    1. Thanks, Carol. Isn't it a fun piece? It was one of those magical times when I was less 'attached' than usual, just playing pretty freely, and all of a sudden it came together. This piece is 5.75x7". And for sale : )

    1. Sheila, thank you. I do have a graphic design streak in me, and I do love me some scribbles. I think discovering scribbles in grown-up art has been one of the best gifts of the past couple of years.

  3. I absolutely LOVE this scribbles. I really should get one of them myself, but I don't know where to buy it (you already explained to me, but I can't find it here - maybe have not sought well enough....)

    1. Thanks—I love these scribbles, too. As I said above in my comment to Sheila, discovering scribbles in grown-up art has been the best gift!!! The applicator allows me to express myself so freely—totally love it. HOWEVER, at least in my experience, as is true with many art tools, using the applicator hasn't been completely straightforward. I'll share a post in a few days that demonstrates one of the complications.

    3. Coming to your inbox in the near future—but I now take weekends off from posting [!!] so you'll have to wait a little longer than would previously have been the case.
