Playing with new idea

I have a bunch of scrap paper - remnants from cutting 10x14 paper down to 8x10.

I use them to play with ideas and color combinations.

The fish was simply an “I wonder” moment, and the ship (an actual experimental USS destroyer) an opportunity to play with grays.

Rose madder and aureolin to make a burnt sienna, added to cobalt blue for a gray. Photo is redder than the actual painting but it makes a nice vibrant gray. (gotta work on my tech...)

Thomas

Re: Playing with new idea

Both good paintings, but I'm drawn to the angel fish. Soft, delicate, and loose enough to be interesting. And I intend this in a most positive way, to me it feels like it could be right at home as a print on a swaddling blanket from a hospital, or framed and hung. Keep going with your wonderings and new idea!

Thanks, Pigment Pusher. I think I will do more like it!

Thanks, Doug. I have been having a good conversation with Jim about grays in the Maritime channel.

Re: Playing with new idea

I love the fish, Thomas. Just enough definition and plenty of pizazz in the colors!
