Another week and I did it again. Last week I wrote about a project I was working on. You can read about the details in: Saturation Point Reached.
Remarkably (at least for me) I was able to carry on with another project using the same process as last week. Let me give a quick summary for those not having read the previous post.
To put it simply (hopefully): I created a triptych. Each of the three images were created independently and linked together using what I like to call “linking” points.
Each image was created with ink markers using mostly parallel hatching strokes.
A Looping Triptych
As with last week, on each image I started from a single point with no final composition planned.
However, I did find myself contriving the results. I also increased the size of the paper and the size of the felt marker tip. I’m hoping the larger size will make for a tighter look when digitized and viewed on a larger screen.
The tightness of the first image motivated me to loosen up for image two. I also decided to include a recognizable structure.
Image three saw me somewhat (okay, completely) infatuated with branch like structures and even more of an organic look.
If my previous triptych each image required more than one sitting. Although I went to a larger format this week each image was completed in one sitting. I attribute this to the looseness of the technique and the thicker line strokes.
As with last week all three images are linked together to produce a loop. Once digitized these images are linked to create three individual compositions.
Which composition do you find most interesting?
That’s it for today, have a great week, the sun is rising earlier every morning — enjoy!
