Some History

Image

I just might finish this drawing tomorrow. I wasn’t even supposed to finish it at all, but due to a hand-full of reasons, this piece will be all my own rather than a collaboration. It was going to be hard to leave it after taking it this far anyway. As I was working on it, I flipped back through some photos and sketches that influenced the original watercolor painting in the first place. One being the memory of (but revisiting this photograph of) the turbulent North Sea from my days in Scotland (above).

Here is a calmer view. The colors of northern Scotland still come into my work. They may never leave my color memory. At least I hope not.

Some recent color studies I did of day and night. I didn’t finish the series (yet) but the stripes of color did make their way into the watercolor painting.

The watercolor painting where I first made this particular composition.

An oil painting from grad school that seems to have passed some shapes on to this painting. I like to look back to see how my paintings keep certain characteristics.

Some sketches from the local natural history museum, where I drew some fossils.

Where I am with it now. Nearly there!

Have a great weekend,

Kathryn
