I was really picky when it came to selecting my colours. I love colours and there were so many different combinations I wanted to try. However from the start I knew I didn’t want too many colours, the maximum was 4. I also wanted the colours to flow through all my works to keep a constant style and balance.
I decided then on two main colours red and blue, with a little dark navy blue and violet. By studying Ikko Tanaka’s work and Mel Tow. This gave a Japanese feeling to my works and I really enjoyed it. For my paper, I was stuck between one that felt like cloth and the other which I decided on, that was thicker and it stretches the ink, giving this texture similar to rice paper.
Here are other combinations which I have tried my artworks on.
