This past month has been a unique mix of trying some new things & revisiting and reworking something old.
First new experiment
Focusing on texture. My son gave me the idea to try painting black on black and having it be all about the texture. I had toyed with this unexpectedly on another piece and was interested enough to give it a try.
Some works in progress:
Another challenging aspect of this was its a total reverse of my work methods. I am used to working from dark to light. I always start with a black background.
Working from light to dark was a challenge to reconfigure my crazy brain around.
I can say I was finally successful and I think my brain appreciated the workout :)
But I'll leave you with a hint - turtles
