A Voyage In Three Parts

My first triptych.

 

A Voyage In 3 Parts – Left

This one has a part of a map of South America, and lots of texture.

 

An artist shouldn’t have favorites, but if I did have a favorite, for this batch, I’d pick this one. I’d put on a streak of red, and didn’t like it, so rubbed it off, and i’m rather fond of the staining that remained.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I liked the red gash on the Left one so much, I added a horizontal red gash on this one. Then heightened it with bright red on corrugated cardboard printed on. Then I didn’t like it, so covered up the left 2/3 of it.

 

 

Conclusion: red is tricky. Sometimes it works. And other times you have to work with it to put it in its place.
