Update: Canvas Bag & Untitled

Bag with yellow pattern

The bag is almost done! I forgot that painting on canvas is difficult unless your paint is watery enough to travel and sink into the fabric. A couple pattern units later I finally remembered and it made the rest of the work a lot easier (and less frustrating). It’s difficult to tell in the photo, but the yellow paint sat very nicely over the teal. I’m not sure if after the first iron/wash this effect will still show up, but it is something I had intended in the initial sketch. I hope it stays :/


The painting is still in progress and no where near finished. It’s partly because I’m not sure how I want to use the watercolor in terms of textural effect. Do I want everything to be very smooth and blocky, or have everything bleed and blend together? I should probably just shut up and paint…


#06 Waiting

In the rain, you may find shelter in some unlikely places. Be it old or new, as long it can protect you from the change that is happening all around. It is only a matter of time before the storm passes and you venture out into a newly washed world. While the running water is clearing out a new path in the ground, how will you be preparing yourself for what is to come?
