Beginning Five

Part One

This painting began with the upper third a light tan and the lower two thirds a green that was somewhere between an olive and a fern.

This current look was achieved by dribbling paint along the top edge and adding lots and lots of water and letting the paint cascade down.  The black was added via Pipette and allowed to run in a couple directions before lying flat.

There is some light glare here and I may use these shapes as inspiration later.

  1. Kari, your sharing of process continues to be a tremendous gift—sometimes a glimpse at a specific technique that intrigues me but, probably even more, the gift is the chance to be at your virtual side as you let a painting go where it will go, take you where you will take it. In this beginning, the colors call out to me, along with the downward flow and both the shape and contrast of the black.

  2. Love the black accent... really sings out!!!
