URBAN THREADS is hot off the presses. This one took a lot of thought and playing with shape and line.
I turned it many ways to see which way looked the best before I signed it.
In fact I could have had this as a horizontal or vertical painting, but in the end, this horizontal won out.
The process was a very playful throw - in of paint at first using my liquid acrylics leaving a LOT of white paper showing. (That's the easy part)
Next I began to place tape down and some curved shapes and using watercolor and some liquid acrylics, I negatively painted around some of the shapes. I still had no clue what was happening, this is purely an INTUITIVE approach.
The swirly lines were already there from my first lay in. I knew I wanted to make a feature of these.
ABSTRACTS take a lot of concentration, walking away from them, assessing, taking things away,reconstructing. Placing other shapes into the image, walking away from the image, walking back into the image, it truly is a process.
I love geometric shapes.. However I do love organic shapes as well. This image seemed to tell me it wanted a more structured feeling, and the GRID - like patterns began to pull me around the image.
The lines I had made in my first throw- in were also a huge lead into and around my image and one I wanted to make a feature of.
So URBAN THREADS was born.. I hope you like. :))
