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. ❤
