A symbol is introduced…
I’m still working on my first panel and I’ve spent a deal of time thinking through a number of options.
My biggest issue at present is that there’s too much ‘white’ on the panel. The drawing looks far too ‘graphic’, so I decided to add more colour. I’ve introduced a green (lime peel), because that colour will feature more prominently on the left panel.
I have used black outlines to create more clearly defined shapes, one of which represents outstretched arm, pointing towards the left panel. Its symbolic role will be revealed at a later stage.
To compliment the variety of ‘marks’ that appear on the drawing, I’ve added white, or should I say, left small areas white, for balance.
This coming week I’ll be away in Darwin, which means that there won’t be a diary entry next Saturday. I will post another entry in a fortnight’s time.
Before my next diary entry I intend to start on the second (left hand side) panel that will feature a strong, rural look.
More on Monday.
