Air Drawing (Cerulean Blue Sage) I
Acrylic, Gouache & Pencil on heavyweight (400 gsm) fine art paper
I began a series of paintings last year called “Air Drawings”. The works were inspired by the long and graceful tree braches that I see weaving through the landscape. I love how branches intersect and criss-cross through the sky, like they were woven in mid-air.
This piece began with a loose pencil drawing on the paper. Then, each color is carefully mixed by hand to create a harmonious color palette. The lines are applied one at a time with multiple thin layers of paint to create a rich & saturated surface.
