This week’s 10 cranes… The current crane tally is 37.
Finally had the chance to put something a little more substantial together today. I’ve had this in my head for some years now, but didn’t know how to get it down. It’s 20cm square. Agnes Martin’s work means a lot to me, and I finally feel like her work has filtered through me in this piece.
Two ensos for today. I started the top one and then wanted to see what using more yellow ochre would look like, so I did the one below as well. I worked a little differently here because I did the watercolor portions of both pieces, Noah woke from his nap, I fed him, and then came back to the pieces, and finished them with the red ink. I’m also starting to wonder about the red “seals”. When I started these, they were a reference to the Zen paintings that inspired me, but now they are starting to seem redundant.
Today’s enso. I’m starting to vary the red line a bit more here.
I didn’t get a chance to draw on Saturday, so I made 2 ensos on Sunday. This is one of them.
Tonight I drew as Tim changed Noah and played with him. I like the drawings on this page in particular, especially the one at the bottom.
