This print is about as confusing as it gets, for me. I'm using a key black block and two blocks for color, each with their own areas, and using them mostly reductively. This is a view after my third run (Small reds, blue car windows, and hosta greens).
Not a big difference compared to run 2, but it's starting to get there. Here's some after run #2
I'm using stencils for small color areas before I carve them away and get to the big stuff.
Now compare this to a print that wasn't ghosted on the sidewalk run:
So much better. It still looks like nothing, but I know that when it's done the hosta leaves are going to look much better than the rest. I have been changing the colors around all throughout the process, so I have about five prints with a different sidewalk yellow. I say mid-success:
And finally, an in-studio picture of attempted order, and the color blocks as they are now.
And block 3
So much work and such a slow process. I'm not sure where I'm going next, my gut says go for all the small color areas so I can know how to relate them to the bigger, more important areas. But I'm very impatient and might end up starting to outline the Super America and fill in the parking lot and sky...
