Freehand gold pigment doodle artwork

When I painted the gold outline for my Yuzen style hexagon painting, I mixed way to much gold paint. After I finished all hexagon panels I still have a big puddle left in the special container for gold paint. Then again, I don’t want to waste it. But I don’t have any other ongoing painting that needs gold line work. I search my basement to find something that I can “reuse” the gold paint on it. I find a pretreated wood signboard from couple of months ago. That wood signboard was meant for another ancient Egyptian style gold and black painting. I’ve already treated the frame with gold leaf and applied black gesso on the surface.

So, I decide to let it go without any plan. I try to paint it with my feelings and thoughts at that moment. Gold paint only, free hand completely. I start from the upper left corner and moves to lower left corner. In the beginning I feel a lot uncertainty since I have no idea what the end result would be. However as I paint through it, I feel more and more excited because I can’t wait to see what the end result would be. Those line work brings me lots of fun and calms me down.

At last, here it is.

Now, I am eager to start another one. Also, I am thinking about impasto medium to give it some texture. I like this little doodle artwork. Thanks to LINA IRIS VIKTOR. ❤

My paintings are an outlet to express the imagination I have inside my head that I can not put into words. After trying many mediums, I always find myself coming back to paint and brushes. In my current artistic practice, I use oil paint and mainly create portraits of mythical creatures and animals transfixed in the shifting colours of seascapes and landscapes. There is a natural spirit and magic to these creatures and their energy draws me in. Choosing to paint these creatures as real living wildlife rather than abstractions, I use bold and vivid colours to express the imaginary intertwined with reality, finding magic between the seams. Using a saturated colour palette, I create bold and striking imagery, contrasted between foreground and background, subject and landscape, and light and darkness. Weaving their bodies and the surface of the landscape into each other through organic forms and flowing brush strokes, I find beauty, strength and innocence in these creatures that reflect my inner world.
