Stripeless Tigers

I think this might be my 200th post! I suppose that means I've done a lot of drawings over the last couple of years. 4 years?

This is a step on the way to combining pure shape-excitement with intensity picture-excitement. What I like just now best is pure pencil, or pure watercolour... other things complicate my thinking unnecessarily. I don't need those extra textures... I need to think in pure pictures. Form dealt with first, then colour in a way where it's doable.

Sloppy Pale Tiger

I painted a watercolour picture.

I'm not sure either Ruskin or John K would approve of it, but I am sort of excited on my own behalf about watercolour at the moment, and sometimes you have to do things on your own behalf, even if they don't fit with anything else.

It's based on an old postcard I had of an ancient Greek mosaic, which I've always come back to.
