Front and Back
Often times when I paint circles on paper, I feel that the back of the piece is more visually interesting to me. They are a lot more 'contemporary' I suppose, and they have an entirely different feel from the front. It's an interesting thing going on. I've toyed with the idea of making pieces that are for windows/see-through, but I haven't quite combated the fading problem that would occur. But indeed, the circles are interesting when you look through them. Maybe even more so. Too bad pigments fade, that's all I can say. But I finished three new circles and the backs are very nice indeed, in a sparse and empty way. They are drying right now, so the photos will be up tomorrow. I might scan the backs too.
