Today I spent the afternoon doing watercolor exercises. Positive and negative space. Lost and found edges. Shadows. This is the best result, though the shadow side of the tomato sucks.
Today I experienced a breakthrough in my painting. I intellectually understand negative painting, but today I physically understood negative painting. I just some how “got it” and this painting began to shift in its creation. Our bodies and our minds are so connected, but in this world of a separation of physical health from mental health, the connection is oftentimes lost. Personally, I do have a bit of problem connecting the right brain and the left brain from a long ago head injury, so when that connection occurs, it is really a very physical awareness. I’ve had that when studying math. Today I had it while studying lights and darks.
