About this artwork of 15 miniature square paintings earthy autumnal colours... by the artist
This artwork contains 15 little paintings in one. Essentially, each one is a miniature mixed media study of composition and colour, textures and marks.
To begin the piece, I divide the paper in 15 squares with lightly drawn pencil marks. Each of those small squares then becomes an individual painting. I work in various media to create layers of paint strokes and spatters, pastel squiggles, ink drips, collage pieces and more.
The challenge is to make each little painting look great on its own, while making the whole piece work in terms of composition, energy and colour. So I go back and forth until I feel that the balance is just right. I can get lost for hours in the happy zone of creating these! 🤣
My colour palette for this artwork was full of beautiful mixes of autumn shades including burgundy, orange, red, yellow and earthy brown. With touches of lavender and pale pink. Rich, warm, vibrant colours with thoughts of an invigorating autumn walk kicking up leaves, followed by hot chocolate by an open fire.
