Study 91: Art Resolutions-The Cursive Line Escapes

Art Resolutions is a self-imposed initiative to create an art study every day for a year.

Back to the exercise of yesterday and the section of the large piece that I framed before eliminating the portions that resulted in yesterday’s study. Like the larger piece from which this section came, the appeal of it was in the quality of the line. As I isolated imagesections of the larger piece with a small mat, I was immediately struck by how much it looked like Japanese calligraphy. The beautiful fluid brush strokes so vibrant especially in orange.

Again, I took away sections of the painting then added back a large section of black on the right. Over that, I used digital pencil in gold over the black and navy background. I brought in more pencil in navy and grey to add texture and character to different areas. The effect is similar to the soap and ink scratch boards I did in grade school but more colorful and pronounced.
