I'm coming right out and saying NO guarantees of 30 Paintings in 30 Days but I will be painting!
I love dramatic abstract expressionist paintings and black and white is one of my favorites. So I started some paintings that can go together as a grouping for wall decor! Smart and sharp!
I named the series (how ever many I do) "Out of Dark Comes Light and Color" because it's kind of like my life. I battle depression, well actually not clinical depression but situational depression (which I am so happy for) I try to crawl out of that pit when I fall in asap!
The white symbolizes light and life coming out of the darkness and depression and the color accent is the zest and joy for life.
I would like to explore the different blacks. I see this series as groupings of four using Bone Black and Titanium White. The color accents, just a bit, drawn by a palette knife, will be Cad Red, Ultramarine Blue and Cad Yellow.
As I move on I will explore Carbon black and maybe Chromatic black.
They all have a grungy look made by layering extensively and wiping and scraping back and more layering with the palette knife.
Stick around! See what happens!
