For today’s project, I made a box for the 50x50x50 series. Making it in origami and using a thick watercolor paper allowed me to make the box with good structure, and without using any adhesives.
Each group of 10 watercolors is bound with a red embroidery thread.
Today’s enso in the soap box series.
I’m continuing this enso series working with the colors I chose yesterday: Ultramarine, Alizarin Crimson, and Quinacridone Gold. The various mixtures these three colors make remind me alternatively of bruising and of wine stains.
Here is the soap box this series lives in:
I’m starting a new series of ensos, this time in a square format. They fit in a soap box. (Picture to follow tomorrow.)
Today, I made a series of watercolor and ink drawings that fit into a Jila mint box given to me on our Qantas flight from Oz to the States. There are 21 drawings (plus a legend explaining each one) about first discovering Jila mints.
It is a “story” about the trip to the convenience store, discovering the mints, and the experience of tasting them. While I was — in a way — illustrating this story, I wanted to keep each drawing abstract.
