New Painting


This painting is a watercolor on paper (7" x 4 ½"). Though the setting is imaginary, the colors are based on studies done in Central Park at night (3 of which are posted below). 
          I think this painting is a fair demonstration of one of the pay-offs of color studies (a definition of which can be found in my post of May 15), which, in addition to being a crucial means of technical exercise, are also a fertile means of thinking on paper. The very act of laying colors down onto a surface initiates a chain of thought, which is accompanied and directed by words, but enacted by images, the goal, in this case at least, being the formation of a composition.
