Whisper of Silk
22" X 30" Mixed Media on Watercolor Paper. Unframed.
In my series "Green with Verdigris" I wanted to explore the relationship of bronze with water used to create not only the vivid bronze and turquoise (verdigris) colors, but also to show movement throughout the abstract background. I have always been driven to create figurative art. "Whisper of Silk" was inspired by one of my sketches done in a live figure drawing session. In studying my drawing, it appeared to be of an Asian woman in a kimono. Although I kept with my bronze and verdigris swirls in the background, I wanted to add some softness with pink and warm reds.
