This postcard originated as a series of spirals in yellow ochre and burnt sienna, as those are colors I do not use frequently. The result seemed too melancholy, so I added spirals heading the opposite direction, this time with lemon and crimson hues.
The questions in this piece concern the cobalt blue: why are the dabs at the edges travelling to the center? Why does the center contain mostly pockets of blue, but also a larger, blotted area that blends into a muted forest green? What are those smaller colonies in the interior left swirl planning?
With vivid light and watercolor effects:
Are the blue pockets happy? Why did they migrate to this swirl from wherever they were living previously?
