I did this painting while attending an online class comparing Eastern and Western art. The idea of outlining elements in black was discussed as a feature of Japanese prints from the 1800’s – the technique was natural to me; I’ve done it for as long as I can remember. I took this opportunity to indulge myself!

Here is a painting done in April, 2022, 24″ x 18″, acrylics on Masonite. It’s called “Merge”.

    I really like strong outlines and I think you always use them so effectively. The rich black really makes your colour choices pop and your shapes more emphatic.

      Thank you. I’ve been doing things in these light colors in several cases recently. Don’t know why but I like the light feel of these combinations.
