Today’s watercolor is a variation of yesterday’s, which was inspired by Kandinsky’s line drawings in front of a colorful background. As with my abstract of yesterday, I began with two lines intersecting at 90 degrees. I ended each line with a flourish, with the aid of a compass and added another concentric arc.
Yesterday I did not intend for the overall effect to resemble a face, but indeed it did. Today’s watercolor contains the same elements as yesterday. I interrupted the general color gradient on one side of the two intersecting lines by painting a monotonic red abutting this border.
It is not difficult to imagine a face in this composition. A different choice of icons and line combinations should remedy this situation. I have some other variations in mind.
