. . . dithered in circles
for my sister. . . she wanted black and white circles . . . perhaps a set of three. . . so I tried various methods of creatively making black circles on white paper. I tried monoprinting . . . blech. Then gesso-covered tissue paper and black gesso. . . okay, but not great, not like she showed me. Regular old paint on wet watercolor paper. . . the paper was too wet. Again with watercolor paper squeegeed. . . better. Now on dry watercolor paper . . . the result is above, shown with a too-small mat. If I had ever taken any art classes I probably would have known exactly how to do it right the first time. But then I wouldn't have had any fun experimenting. My sister's house is ultra-contemporary and very, very beautiful. A set of three of these will looking smashing.
