A New Painting? Yep!

 

 

 

 

kate is not a hipster : watercolor + alcohol on 8×10″ wood panel

This afternoon I finished the first painting in my new two-color series. I decided to go with wood panel rather than paper. It posed a completely new set of challenges, but also yielded new and interesting results. I am really interested in exploring what I can create with these limited color palettes. It is definitely a challenge, but I think that by incorporating some different watercolor techniques, I can create something meaningful and (hopefully) aesthetically pleasing (to someone other than myself – heh).

Also, I made a HUGE mess of my studio working on this and another piece in this series today. There is paint everywhere – on the floors, my desk, my laptop, my clothes. So, apparently, I am capable of making messes (out of things other than my life – heh).

So, thoughts?

UPDATE : some kids weren’t meant to be cool and kate is not a hipster are now available on Etsy.

  1. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. Experimentation is good for the soul — and the process can open new vistas. Oh, and studio messes are MUCH easier to clean up than “life messes”. Take it from one who has a few light years behind her. (I can just feel the eyerolls. That’s o.k., I can take it).

  2. Thank you all so much! I am actually having a lot of fun with this. It requires much less ‘perfection’ than my illustrative work.
