Palette No. 8
12 x 16" original abstract watercolor on hot pressed paper.
These pieces are exactly what they sound like - a response to and a byproduct of my illustrations created by using watercolor paper instead of a traditional palette. I allowed paint to dry on the paper to preserve the image created by the act of mixing colors.
They are a capture of the swirling, frenzied activity that is unfolding in tandem with my paintings. They are the inverse of my usual style. A dream-world, upside down, deconstructed blueprint of the colors that build my illustrations. Each palette is one of a kind and will not be made into prints to preserve the integrity of texture and luminosity of paint.
