I used this foundation in this manner to see what would happen with geometric shapes. I could make straight lines along the edges you see. There was something under the small box so I could still stay within my rule of using straight lines.
This is not finished. Another rule for this one was I would do design work, meaning fancy black lines, with curls, tree-like roots.
The pinkish-brown bled into the blue. I am not sure what pastels I will go for.
The yellow rings are interesting to me. Not sure what I will do with those.
There is one possible “line” to make. It is located at the top and would come off the line anchored to the upper right corner, which heads towards the middle. The is a crumbly area just ahead of it where the line ends. This possibility heads off toward the left upper corner. It’s a darker narrow tint. There is also a C shape tint. A similar curved line cuts across the forward rectangle with the hole cut out of it. the one with the brown piece of “wood”.
It may be I can play with that rough area at the top, and make it become something growing like moss there.
I live in Southern Maine. I am the owner of Anisette Studios. My website is https://www.anisettestudios.com/ Here you can view and purchase Shibui, sign up for my newsletters, blog, and read articles about Shibui Found Image Art. Patrons get great deals several times a year and special items at times. My site makes it easy to contact me. My primary art form is Shibui Found Image Art. Shibui begins with action art and stems from the imagination. It is like seeing something in the clouds or solving a puzzle. Its creative process has its own rules and requires what I call reverse engineering due to a lack of an understructure and purely out of the imagination. In addition to those who patron me, my target groups are those who use art therapy. I will soon be teaching live. Contact me if you would like to learn live. I use Zoom. I request that although my art, other images, and what I write is now published by me here on WordPress; I do ask you do not to use my artwork, poetry, or the information about Shibui Found Image Art without my permission. I am quite available to make such requests. I wish to share the following: The existentialist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir wrote a book called The Ethics of Ambiguity. In it, she lays out a guiding ethic in response to the philosophy of existentialism. It might be somewhat familiar to you already. She writes, “To will oneself free is also to will others free. This will is not an abstract formula. It points out to each person concrete action to be achieved.”
Best wishes to all! Have good times and keep safe! Pejj
