For several years I've enjoyed viewing time lapse videos on a YouTube Channel called RinpaEshidan. The artists continuously paint over parts of collaborative murals and installations. Below is one of my favorite videos from the channel. The murals are simply painted in only black and white.

 The 5" x 5" format limited my painting detail, but I painted anyway. I stuck with simple shapes and representations of a fish and underwater plant life. In the end I decided to leave the background areas solid without dots.

  1. Interesting video. I really like the black and white fish in dots that you painted, Mo. My mom had a dress she wore when I was young that was black and white in flower patterns all over the skirt. It had them with the colors half and half the way you have your fish here. It's funny this should remind me of that dress from so many years ago! :-)

      I like visuals with opposites like that.

      A grouping of my non-dot paintings were inspired by the colors of a dress worn in one of the "Psycho" films. The pattern was very flowery. Start with this painting and click on Older Posts.
