Notes from the Deckle Edge
Fail. Nope, I didn't finish as I had planned. I just kept seeing things that I wanted to change. I gave up after eleven hours of painting yesterday. I hope to finish this work tomorrow, but no promises as I have other plans for the holiday weekend. This current painting is an abstract and has a somewhat impressionistic feel to it. I would describe the style as linear impressionism. A nice combination: color-wise it is somewhere between a Monet and a Signac; but it incorporates very organic shapes similar to a Matisse. Except, of course, it is a watercolor, not an oil or cutout. Not my normal subject matter or style of painting, but I have really enjoyed the change of pace. Trying a different style of painting is like cleansing your palette between food courses; it provides a fresh start.
For your visual enjoyment today I have included a photo of some paper flowers that I made and used for a still life. I have formulated another idea that I would like to try with these flowers and hopefully can incorporate them into a painting in the future. I have added another art documentary review, so be sure and check that out. Back to my brushes.
