Layers 5/100 & 6/100

Feels like I'm creating the site of a future archaelogical dig.

Added tiny gold ink circles in some of the shapes created by my having painted negative space in layer 3. Added black ink lines in some of the other shapes. Added blue ink scribbles in the negative space. Added red and gold dots in the negative space. Layer 5.

Rotated my gessobord again, inscribed the gold ink circles with black ink, mixed up some blue, white, and green acrylic, and repainted negative space to accentuate the quadrilateral shapes again. Scribbled the wet paint with a stylus to reveal some lower layer paint. Layer 6.

  1. The blue/green layer makes everything pop! Love your mark making and those shapes. Won't it be interesting to look back on all these scans when you reach your 100th layer. Take care Dotty and layer on!

    1. Thanks, Janet. The blue/green layer was fun and I loved how the earlier mark making became much more visually resonant for me. Yes, fun to have a record of the layers.

  2. This is coming very confusing. I think I have to forget other layers and concentrate on the "new" creation and forget the pass. What has gone has gone. BUT knowing me I had to stack them on my screen , mainly because I felt I was back to square 3, more or less. I liked # 3, and LOVE #6 and will probably love #100 will send screen shot.I have to get back to these little dailies!!!

    1. Carol, your comments made me smile. I can appreciate your confusion but, yes, now is the moment. What's gone has gone! This layer DOES bring the painting back to something akin to an earlier layer (hence your confusion, I'm guessing) but with more depth and detail. On I go!

  3. Layer 5 makes me think of France. Sky, flying. Sitting with my head in the clouds literally and figuratively. Lost in thought. Brain jumping one place then the other, then back again. Layer 6 feels like home. Warm and comforting. Have fun tomorrow Dotty :)

    1. Awesome—what fun that layer 5 took you to France! And then layer 6 brought you back to the familiar comforts of home. Thanks for your comments.

  4. I just LOVE this project and I hope you are going on to the 100th level. It is a fabulous lesson in Letting Go (for me a great lessen to learn), and also a great lesson in being open to the unknown, letting yourself create not from scratch but from a given standpoint.

    1. Simone, thanks for your support and enthusiasm. For sure it is a BIG lesson in letting go, and a great lesson in being open to the unknown, and letting myself create not from scratch but from a given standpoint. Thank you for reminding me.

    1. Jen, thanks! Fun to have you identify that one element and speak to it. Yay!
