Bones of the Earth series

Bones of the Earth, 9/29/2009, acrylic monotype on sumi paper mounted on canvas, 30 x 12 inches.

I just love the subtleties going on in the top half, it didn't come through so well in the full shot...so here's the close up...there are layers to this...first a wash of the moss brown, and then I started impressing layers of color with various surfaces, glassine, mat board of various shapes and sizes, and the various circles...the texture of the paper and paint surface comes together like a surprise...I had no plan, it just happens...

My little buddy Kennedy Bear helped hold the drawing for the snap shot...I'm still working with it...still lots more to do...

looks like there are lots of deep dark rich layers.

The texture is wonderful and the deep colors are to.

As an artist I love texture, especially one that is rich and mysterious as you have achieved with your monotype.

Thank you for sharing

your monotype on sumi is very visually chewy! and your assistant is adorable!
