Robots in Love

Today’s composition began with a latex masking (frisket) design. I complied with my practice of the past few compositions, of  shaking my paper while the frisket was still wet, causing it to streak.  I dripped ink onto the paper in different places and blended those spots with watercolors.

I continually inspect the image that arises before me with each application of color. I modify the my choices of colors, as ideas occur to me. As the robots revealed themselves, I chose fields of colors that would accentuate them.

I like the relative formlessness of the robots and the almost electrical network of white space that seems to connect them.
