[no title]

Winsor & Newton CP 300 gsm, 10" x 14".

coming into the end of the year, i had 8 or 10 half used watercolor blocks of papers that i've found myself using less over time ... for one reason or another i don't prefer them.

and coming out of a long stint of figural works, it seemed to me ideal to use up the blocks in abstract paintings.

i don't normally do abstractions or non reps or whatever they're called nowadays, but the christmas related holidays seemed like a great time to unwind and play with paints.

this piece is anchored in vertical stripes and large blocks of color, modulated by diffuse color changes and some textural detail. light is bookended by dark, and the design is slightly asymmetrical.
