Ten days into the 100 day project, already I’m amassing a satisfying stack of paintings-to-be with first layers down.
My strategy this year is not to make a complete painting every day, but still to make 100 paintings in 100 days.
Because the way I work best is to have lots of pieces on the go at any time. I hop about between them and the ideas cross pollinate. These 100 days of Quiet Color are taking a familiar route, spiraling through layers and iterations of pattern.
Right now I’m all about watercolor and ink in swirly shapes (beginning with words which quickly evolve into more abstract shapes). Some already have a lot of tiny details,
(while these first colors are drying I move onto another one)
While others are washes and blobs of color – just a very beginning.
The quiet colors de jour are Payne’s Grey, Indigo & Sepia with a bit of Black & White gouache.
