Two works finished at the end of 2014, as well as the rough lines for another piece I will redo in greater detail in ink, then paint in watercolor or digitally.
I finally scanned in a slew of “Flow”-style paintings. The “Flow” style is designed around allowing the acrylic ink to inform what becomes of the painting rather than starting with a plan. Sometimes this becomes an abstracted work which possesses design elements only and many other times it becomes figurative.
As I’m teaching a workshop at Affaire d’Art this coming weekend regarding the “Flow” style, I’ll be scanning in some smaller works using the technique of the class. This is Shoal, so named because that is what a group of squid is called. Although these are abstracted, they generally give that kind of feeling.
