Moonlight - ~ex Watermedia

W&N and Daler Rowney Watercolour and
W&N Gold Ink

I am exploring taking the usual flat plane of the paper and manipulating it to create interplay between parts in actual shadow vs light, and how colour and textures change as the viewer moves / viewing angle, how light changes on opaque vs "transparent" materials. Also playing with the gold ink and sgraffito, and how the ink reacts to watercolour to form patina.

C&C welcomed.

This is very pleasing to the eye and definitely 3D effects seen, with the paper looking as if it is folded. Gold accents are pure richness as is the royal blue!

Thanks Kay.

Yes, the paper is actually folded, to place the paint surface at different angles to the light thus getting obvious dynamic differences in colour, tone, etc. Needs more exploration.

I am also looking at how to take painting closer to sculpture, yet keeping it painting and not painted sculpture. Your work with collage may provide some clues to explore? Collage in layers in the 3rd dimension?

I have a suggestion for you if you want to push it a bit more...there's a book called The Elements of Pop-Up by David A. Carter. That line between painting and sculpture is thin sometimes, and this might help you!
