Tentacle Deeps 45
Tuesday, December 11th, 2012
I wanted to see what the lovely bronze-green paint from last week’s tentacles would look like on a dark background, and this time it was the green that shone through, and the bronze color can only be seen at certain angles. Actually these tentacles are a bit ectoplasmic to me, Ghostly and half absorbed in each other where they touch, as though reaching up from a pool of ooze to try to catch whatever lies tantalizingly out of reach.
Tentacle Deeps 45, 6″x4″ duochrome watercolor on Arches cover black paper with white gel pen signature.
Above, you can see the color gamut from green to bronze, and the shift between them as the paper falls away from the sunlight. Below, I’ve slipped the piece into a frame, so you can see how it would look sitting on your desk.
