Today’s experiment began as a doodle. I dragged the nearly weightless stick of charcoal across the rough watercolor paper. I used a paper stump to drag the dark outlines of the doodle into the loops. I love that this process produces shading and the appearance of three dimensionality. I hate the sound and feel of the stump against the watercolor paper. It gives me the chills.
I love turning a random doodle into a sculptural work.
My alternate name for this piece is ‘Adam and Eve’. Does this make sense to anyone else?
