The last few weeks have seen a lot of work on new colors and patterns. I admire two color patterns and constantly aspire to designing more of my own, but in my own work I always want to fill up all available space and saturate the picture plane. My two-color work lacks the richness that I love and that hand-dyeing is particularly suited to. Instead of fighting against myself, I'm embracing my aesthetic and going with it.
So, without further ado:
I really like the colors on these first two pieces. Both are good starts but they're missing the layering and richness that I'm looking for.
I love the tone-on-tone blues in the second piece but the value range needs to be rounded out with a deeper blue.
My favorite of the group is definitely this hot pink. Full and saturated, perfect!
