black series: something else
acrylic & pen on collaged paper mounted on wood panel, 6.75" x 7.6" x 1.75"
The original sketch has a layer of white acrylic on top of the tan paper. In the process of glueing it down to the wood panel, i rubbed too hard and got the layer of paper with the acrylic paint torn up. Fortunately, the area where most of the pen drawing is concentrated (in black) is still in tact.
I thought to recreate the original and paint a flesh layer of white where it was before but now the more i look at it, the more it seems to want to be something else...
It's been hanging next to one of the black series paintings and i like it very much together. So maybe this is where the [black] series need to be heading...incorporating some smaller pieces and drawings maybe.
