These three faces were painted yesterday evening, and foiled today. For several days now I have had the image of two profiles, rather simplified & abstract, one red and one green. Separate and both facing to the left.
I have been thinking of these as prints, possibly to be printed from a foil covered mat board plate. But as it happens, my press is a bit hard to access right now, due to my efforts to tidy the rest of the studio. And I don’t seem to have any cut pieces of mat board handy either. So nothing was happening with this nap time vision, until last night in art “class”. Without a better plan, I got out my water soluble graphite pencils and watercolors.
These are not really much like the vague images in my head. OK they are not a all like the images I had in mind. But at least they are visible, out on paper! And now scanned and digitally transformed for a bit more dramatic impact.
