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.
We are flying from the US to Australia over the course of 2 days, and today is the mysterious disappearing day on the trip. Funny how that happens when travelling half-way across the globe… I folded my weekly 10 cranes on a Qantas flight, using a page from the in-flight magazine.
My crane tally so far is 27. (I’ve folded a few here and there in addition to the weekly 10.)
Today’s enso. Traditionally these are done in one stroke, but I’ve taken the liberty of using more than one. At least I am limiting my use of color and the mark-making.
Today’s enso is the first in a little series that fits in one of dad’s old cigar boxes.
I’ve been making things that fit into dad’s cigar boxes for as long as I can remember. I once made a tiny dollhouse in a small wooden one.
