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
