Spring ponderings on paper...

I'm echoing ponderings from one blog to the other...I've been a busy girl creatively, playing around with colors and experimenting with monotypes in my sketchbook...

Abstraction study, March 21, 2009, acrylic monotype on paper, 12 x 9 inches

A detail...this little piece happened because I had leftover paint to use up, so I just started in using it up...and it went on from there...



Color study, 4/3/09, Cretacolor pencils (with water), 10 1/2 x 4 inches

A detail of texture...these pencils become very painterly when wet! I got bold with some orange and then toned it down with white and blue...

Spring Dawn, April 5, 2009, acrylic monotype on paper, 6 x 6 inches (very delicate colors)


And finally, a work in progress...still a little bit left to do with it to make it right...

Tinted graphite, acrylic, and watercolor, 8 x 8 inches...

Maybe I'll finish it today...

WOW! You are very productive. I'm feeling lazy in comparison. I love the delicate quality of all these pieces. I'm especially attracted to the blue one. I've created monotypes with oil on plexigalss but I have never had any success using acrylic. I'm intrigued with the quality of yours.
