Technique:

[1] The center squares on each of the 9 canvases follow the pattern of colors on a color wheel -yellow, orange, red-orange, red, red-violet, violet, blue, green, yellow-green.

[2] The border around the center square is the complement (or opposite color on the color wheel) of the color in step1.

[3] Going outward toward the edge of the painting, the color of the next area is analogous (next ) to the color in step 2 on the color wheel.

[4] The final color is analogous (next) to the color in step 1.

(5) The slash marks on each painting is Wabi Sabi – nothing is perfect.

For example, in the 1st painting above:

  1. yellow is the center color;
  2. purple is the next color – purple is opposite yellow on the color wheel;
  3. violet is the next color – violet is next to purple on the color wheel,
  4. the last color is green – green is next to the color used in step 1.

To begin, I created a painting precisely following my formula which determined the colors I would use. To breathe life into the painting, I decided I wanted to destroy the perfection through a series of quick, unpremeditated brushstrokes —- Wabi Sabi.
