The idea of intersecting free forms is the basis for this study. I had no plan in mind when I began. I used a dip pen with several different widths. The rough tooth of the paper caused the wider ink traces to look a bit rough.
Yellow was the first pigment I laid down, emphasizing the kidney-shaped form. The heart of this form changes from cadmium red light at the top to a more purple shade at the bottom.
The greenish orb and the blue crescent, opposite to it along the boundary curve, define a shape that overlaps the kidney form. The Prussian blue rays are the only coloration outside the ink form
Although I did not know that this would be a portrait, I can see a number of different faces in this work.
