This is the second painting in a new series I am calling “A Limited Vocabulary”. My felted constructions have limited color and I wanted to continue this limited palette in my paintings. I need to give myself “rules” when I begin a new series.
By focusing on certain parameters for each piece in a series, I know where to begin and, hopefully, when to stop. I typically use strong, warm colors in my paintings, so it has been challenging to refrain from starting there. I want to keep the first pieces in this series mostly black, white and a few neutral colors, but as I continue, my limited palette may be black, white and one other color…maybe ORANGE, maybe RED!
I am also going to simplify the design in the paintings as I continue, something I have always wanted to do, but tend to loose sight of often. I am excited to continue and see where this takes me….from the studio
Really love this new one. I agree about the setting the parameters. Keep making art!! XO
I will never stop, just as you won’t! Sue
This new series is looking good and is pretty inspiring. I’m dying to get into the studio–but it’s being built and the construction means getting out much stuff to play with is hard as it will all be covered with dust and construction debris within a half hour. I am going to use some of it to do some dyeing I think. 🙂
Thanks, Suzie. I feel good about this series and am curious as to where it may lead me as I quilt.
Yummy! Love the palette. Self-limiting guidelines are always helpful. I’m looking forward to your progress.
Frankie, I am having a wonderful time. It is always exciting to begin anew! Sue
