Things that push up from the ground have colors unique to their region. Garlic from Georgia and onions from ‘your guess is as good as mine”. They attract me because the earth yields itself, and is willing to harvest. You need to close your eyes and taste; really taste. The flavors and textures paint themselves into the history of its birthplace.
Again, I am using Dr. Ph. Martin watercolors with satisfaction. They seem to have opened a creative crack that grows larger each time used.
Dr. Ph. Martin’s watercolors are the bomb. I just haven’t figured out how to use them successfully for me – until tonight. They are strong-willed, sometimes opaque and wonky to me. However, I love them and am determined to utilize this beautiful gift.
Because of their opacity, I asked myself if glass would be the perfect challenge. How do I paint, illustrate and keep the glass clear?
Having had a good experience balancing cups recently, I decided to try water glasses from the kitchen. Good?
