- Working with palette knife enabled me to work more investigative with additive and subtractive marks
- With some inspirational references to other artists (#17-21) I was looking into other perspectives of painting.
Plan for next week:
Exploring planes and less drawing in paint.
Inspirational sources: Elizabeth Peyton (#19-21), Jonathan Yeo (#17-18)
newest on the top:
#21: Gouache on paper (30 x 40 cm)
=> working with limited and pale palette with some paint dripping marks holding the paper vertical. Truly a more painterly approach with drawing in paint elements.
#20: Gouache on paper (30 x 40 cm)
=> a bit weird composition
#19: Gouache on acrylic paper (31 x 42 cm)
inspired by Elisabeth Peyton
=> today I am frustrated, don’t get shapes or values right. Figured out that I fiddle too much around – just stopped working on it. No likeliness. Keep it like it is – perhaps I will use it in the future as background paper.
#18: Acrylic on acrylic paper (48 x 36 cm)
=> splitting the paper in two half to get to different viewpoints on one page. This let me think about using various viewpoints also for my exercise works.
#17: Acrylic on primed paper (39 x 27 cm)
inspired by Jonathan Yeo (http://jonathanyeo.com/work/)
=> I really like the visual effect, the tonal range and my investigative approach (is it getting closer to drawing?)
#16: Oil pastels on acrylic primed watercolour paper (35 x 51 cm)
#15: Dry pastels on PastelCard paper (40 x 30 cm)
=> at the end I unconsciously spoiled some water drops on the painting what eventually I found an intriguing additional visual element. Thus I added some more water drops.
