Taking a needle for a walk in a batik jungle
You know how one of those art professor assignments is to take a color you're not fond of and work with it in a way that you can come to like? I took this piece of batik to work freeform over it, using purple and a goldy-orange, which are good on the color wheel, but neither of them is a fave of mine, purple bringing up a bitter taste in my mouth.
I decided to try the assignment and found interestingly that the purple suggested interesting swoops and moves. So you never know. I'll see if I end up thinking this piece is okay as I go along. It's going to be stretched 20x16 approximately, in size.
