About this blue artwork of 15 miniature square paintings... by the artist
This artwork contains 15 small paintings in one. Essentially, each one is a miniature mixed media study of composition and colour, textures and marks.
I started the piece by dividing the paper in 15 squares with lightly drawn pencil marks. Each little square then becomes an individual painting using various media. Creating 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. It's hard to stop sometimes! 🤣
My colour palette for this artwork was full of beautiful mixes of blues, from dark blue to cerulean and sky blue. Combined with accents of pale pink, yellow, teal and purple, the artwork has a lovely fresh, joyful feel. Like summer days spent by the river with picnics and ice-creams.
