Bold or Confronting

Bold or Confronting?

Is the final bold or confronting?

Is ‘Red Playground-Finish what you started’ bold or confronting?

It was the first work tackled in my quest  to create 52 abstracts by May 2024 so I could explore and relax; with the studio as my playground where I would approach each piece with child-like wonder.

'Red Playground - Finish what you started', final.
Bold? Confronting? Or, Both!

Simply playing

With no plan for the final outcome, I simply played. A gentle and glowing work emerged with beautiful colours, designs, and shapes from layers of inktense and pigment ink on top of my pre-treated support.

Bring out the big guns

Sensing the work lacked something, in the last video, I brought out the “big guns”. That’s what I called my chisel-tip pigment ink pen. It changed everything. Click here to watch the previous video.

In order to emerge with  a cohesive piece, the tamer left side of the diptych would need to respond appropriately to the combative right side.
