[no title]

Arches CP 300 gsm, 10" x 14".

this piece was made with several layers of iron blue, encouraging the backruns and watermarks, then laying in a thin stroke of cadmium scarlet. the edges were tinted in places with dioxazine violet.

this is reminiscent of some of richter's early watercolors, which however are more eventful. i like the simplicity of the single mark and the play of textures around it.
