Positive & Negative

100.00

This piece is done on 14 x 17 100lb. bristol paper in acrylic paint, watercolor, oil pastel and colored pencils.

I developed this piece after I did some studies of artichokes. This is similar to Beneath the Stem  however, I chose to cut up another painting and collaged parts of it to show the change in the leaves. I also wanted to use the the colored pencil as a way to exaggerate the surface instead of just using it as a overlaid texture. It's hard for me to use negative space (I feel like it's begging to be colored in!) but I forced myself to use it to let the leaves "breathe" and create depth. 

Because this is a medium sized piece, I would recommend including it in a gallery wall, in a guest room, an office or above a nightstand.
