My drawing and painting life
I will be making abstract pieces for several days at least. I’ve cut hot press watercolor paper in a standard size to make these colored abstracts. I have two reasons to do these: (1) to make abstracts for their own sake, enjoy the making and see what comes; (2) to make sketches that will help me paint abstract paintings on a larger canvas.
May 2 abstract sketches, #245/365. I started by just making marks in watercolor on four of these paper, to create a space I could work on in more detail. I started four. And ended up with two I like. I could push the other two further, but I figured that time was up. I didn’t have a clear plan how many I would finish beforehand.I don’t know if I’ll take the same approach every day. We’ll see.
By the way, I remember doing this kind of thing – working on sketches on small papers – before, from a class in abstraction. I produced pieces that were very different. It will be interesting to see how this practice of making abstract sketches will work when I go on for several days – will the work be similar over time, or different?
