Finished a piece on heavy weight drawing paper. I enjoy working in my sketchbook with my Faber Castell color pencils so I decided to create works on paper as an extension of that concept. The paper is by Strathmore and is 8 x 10 inches.
Small oil pastel • The gold-leafed artwork “Friendship” by Agnes Martin inspired me to add metallic to this piece 💛
Trying to get over my aversion to bright colors.
Last week to see "One Shot" featuring Color Field artists in Beverly Hills! Detail of Sam Gilliam “Swing 64”, 1964 pictured above. #OneShot #UTAArtistSpace
and the teacher becomes the student ... I know it doesn’t look like much, but this is what I did for most of the day in class today; playing around with color theory #backtoschool
Sky (After Barnett Newman), detail.
Barnett Newman maintained an illusionistic relationship between forms in space, blurring the distinction between form and ground.
Newman’s ‘zips’ define the spatial structure of the painting, while simultaneously dividing and uniting the composition. Few Newman pieces feature horizontal zips, notably Dionysius, and Argos, both of 1949.
Sky may appeal also to fans of Ellsworth Kelly, Brice Marden, Frank Stella, Agnes Martin, Yves Klein.
This was my 2nd Barnett Newman studio submission piece for the MoMA course on Abstract Expressionist painting techniques I graduated from in 2017.
