I was planning on a simple and emptier canvas for today, but I ended up painting a landscape. I mentioned that I will be exploring Fauvism in my own work in my last post, but I wasn’t sure which element of it I’d focus on first.
I’m leaning toward the liveliness of the colors in Fauvism. Not blending has been difficult, especially with the non-traditional watercolor approach to this art style. It’s a challenge especially when an art form is new to you, but there are things to appreciate as well. I’m really liking the sudden appearance of the white paper in the midst of bold colors. It’s an interesting juxtaposition.
