Misplaced Shadows

I began this study with Kandinsky’s work in mind. I wanted to create a visual relationship between crisp geometric shapes, circles and lines and some kind of formlessness. I didn’t get very far before I ran out of ideas.

Watercolor: Abstract - Misplaced Shadows 120917

Misplaced Shadows
12″x9″ 140# Cold Pressed Watercolor Block

The organizing principle of this piece (or disorganizing principle) is the disconnection between line that could have been shadows to the (more or less) vertical pickets; and the disregard for perspective.

    • Don’t know if you’ll find it in Kandinsky’s work. I like how his geometric figures combine with each other and lines that either connect the figures or draw the viewer from one place to another. Thanks for your comment, Anthony!
