india ink, acrylic on claybord
This piece was a real pleasure to work on. It's the only work of my recent paintings that I actually wanted to bring life-related colors into the process. Part of the reason why my palette has brightened so much is because I've had such an aversion/discomfort with bright, inviting colors throughout my life. It's mostly related to my deep roots in black and white drawing and little success with color experiments outside of painting from life.
