A Busy Week
I've been exploring different styles of abstraction with watercolor. It's so interesting to me that just as with previous media that I've been into, the concept of developing a style in watercolor has been on my mind. Although it's more an exploration of various techniques and methods of application, while learning how to work with (read: control) this medium with a mind of its own. And testing out things other artists have done to see if they fit for me.
There likely won't be a distinct "answer" to my experimentation, and that's okay. This quote from Tricycle's daily newsletter is apt, for painting and for life:
I suspect there will never be answers. Instead there will be only the awkwardness of the struggle—and perhaps the struggle is a sublime kind of grace in itself, which merely disguises itself as awkwardness.
—Rick Bass, “Bonfire”
Have a great week. xx
