I’m creating these 8×10 oil, graphite, and charcoal pieces. I started inspired by organic shape; the first piece, on the back right, began as a flowing line, my focus on composition and interesting negative space. The tree/cloud/mountain shapes later emerged. I’ve continued this series with the yellow sky, blue/green color pallet, & I’m now working on a red background triptych with blue & yellow forms.
These pieces are reminiscent of this Box City piece I painted in April. Since the negative space of a piece can be even more important than the positive shape, I draw the forms based on the background. Then I develop the foreground shape.
Forms not completely described let the imagination fill in the pieces. You can climb around the shape with your mind and engage with the organic form.
