Once again I am playing with white space and patterns. My goal is to create a painting as dynamic as my collages, using only transparent watercolors. Rather than come up with a new composition, I relied on the lovely Roatan woman sitting on white lawn chairs.
I attacked this by saying my favorite mantra repeatedly: It's only paper.
I'm posting 3 images to help you better understand just how challenging this experience was. Although it was difficult, it was also liberating, as I ignored all my impulses to do something safe.
I'd welcome feedback. I'm asking myself the following questions.Is it playful and whimsical? Does it make me smile? Is it over the top?
