My friend Andrew offered up this challenge to me months ago, and then it was reiterated by the Bearded Dude after he saw the outline I painted for the Paddington Station painting I did:
'why don't you paint a black & white series?'
I attempted to with a painting I did of the Garneau Theatre, but I cheated and used some colored paper in the background and made the lettering on the neon sign red.
Not really black & white, Justina.
So the Sunday before we left for Mexico, I brought four 16x16 inch canvases to the Boyle Street Plaza pop-ip market with the intention of painting while I was there and bringing as few supplies as possible. I just put the finishing touches on them today:
*these are also posted in the England gallery on this site.
There it is, my first ever black & white series. The only cheated bits I guess are the paper and grey ink. I just love mixing media so much!
These pieces will be divided between both Transcend locations, if you are in Edmonton and want to see them in person.
Happy Friday, friends!
