The first snow came and went in our small valley but Fall color still lingers. The quieter season is now with us but we are gearing up for the holidays.
Recently I decided to develop a few favorites from my daily color series into a larger body of work. The daily color series are small in scale and the size is based on scoring and tearing down a standard-size sheet of 300# watercolor paper from 22 x 30 inches to 5.5 x 7.5 inches. Hand tearing the paper mimics the deckled edge inherent to the paper-making process.
These larger works maintain a similar proportion but are an approximately 200% increase in scale.
