Bold (2015)

22 Sep


So I started this piece with this chaotic under-layer of lines going everywhere in this discontinuous progression of ink swirls.  I started shading in some of the line areas and some great shapes started to emerge.  I decided to go mono-chromatic with this piece to draw out the beauty of the emerging lines.  I love seeing new work come to life and take shape.  I feel like I go into every piece ready to let it just happen without a definitive idea where its going or what kind of result I want to achieve.

    Really love this one, Eli! I’d love to see a color version, but this monochrome is very nice also.

    I like this in monochrome. There is only so much that each piece can contain and I think color would send it over the edge. I really like this one.

    Beautiful. The monochromatic color scheme really allows the composition and design to take center stage. Nicely done.

    To me, this one has a mid-century or early sixties feel to it. I like it!
