Project 19

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.

IMG_0447We 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.)

IMG_0441Today’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.
