Subtle dark colours bloom into blues and greys and deep, soft violets, and the intricate detail of pen and ink is nearly lost as the paint splash bursts outward from the central circle.
This is the 4th installment in my Growth series, with a color palette that hearkens back to the first and a design that evolves visually from the third.
Five by five is quite small, and you can find frames just this size at the big craft stores, so you could tuck it into a bookshelf, put it on a desk, or make it one of a cluster of artworks on a larger wall.
Doesn’t everyone need a little Growth in their life?
Growth 4, 5″x5″ pen & ink and Japanese watercolor on watercolor paper.
Above, you can see the hints of pen-and-ink circles, blurred by paint but still visible. Below, the painting is in a frame, all of its beautiful texture on display.
