The Space Between

The Space Between
Acrylic, modeling paste, ink and graphite on watercolor paper, mounted on cradled wood panel. 9x12x1"

One of the things that interests me is drawing in new ways. And now that I have a format to present a finished drawing, well, the door has been opened wide.
For this drawing, I had no specific subject matter in mind, so it was a total adventure to find my way into and out of the work. To begin, I mounted the paper on the panel and prepared the surface with heavy gloss modeling paste. It leaves a textured surface which can be drawn into with pencil or pen, and can also be 'corrected' with a wet paintbrush.
Once the surface was dry I set about finding the shapes to emphasize or define.
This drawing was a seat of the pants adventure. Since it isn't a picture of anything in particular, it leaves the viewer with the challenge of deciding what to think, making it a conversation between us.
I particularly like the freedom to make marks with nothing inhibiting my imagination, knowing I am making something completely unlike anything I have done before. $100 Email me.

    Very interesting. I think it looks like a map,the dark areas look like water to me. Maybe this is Venice? I like it a lot. Julie

  4. It reminds me a little of a new book I started tonight called Wabi Sabi art workshop. There are some similar processes in there and it is good reading. You might like it if you haven't already seen it.
