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:
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.
