Fantasy Patterns - Part II

Painting papers with geometrical motifs is really a wonderful idea! You can paint whatever you think in a wide range of patterns and colors! You only need a relax moment and make your imagination to go!. This is a part of my work this week. The background for these papers were made with paste painting technique, and the motifs were done with natural inks! So two different techniques into one piece of paper!.

Fantasy Patterns - Natural Inks.

Today I show my latest work in the last two days. In this opportunity I've made fantasy patterns, as water lilly leaves, and spirals. The next week it will be the last working week, because I'll be preparing my schedule and materials for the 29th ITALIAN ORIGAMI CONVENTION (CDO) that will be held at Tabiano Bagni, from 8th-11th december. I will bring my painted papers to this Convention.

Painted Tiles with Natural Inks - Part II

Here there is a classical tile pattern of alternated crossed lines. As the last works, this is painted with natural inks freehand. Time ago I've done this patterns also with pastepainting technique. Each one has their own peauty. This one made with fine brushes gives to the papers some delicate appeal.

Painted Tiles with natural inks - Part I.

I love geometrical forms, and when I think on it, the first that comes to my mind are TILES... Their sequence, their repetitions, many kinds of forms and arrangements. There is inside them a strange mistery of art, different interpretations, all inside the forms, the way you can see them... Here I show the first part of my painted papers with a particular tile pattern that I've called CROSSED SIGNALS. Hope you all like them. 

NOTHING of these patterns was done with rules, all is done freehand, the grids, the tiles, all...

I want to ask to you (all my blog readers and visitors) to tell me and show me if you have any particular tile you want to be painted into paper. I will be pleased to try your suggestions!

"Movement" collection I

In this month of  November I continue to create painted papers using natural inks! They offer high versatility and allows me to get so many patterns, combining the different color tones in a harmonious way.

In this opportunity I am presenting a small part of the collection which I called "Movement". It is composed of several patterns that give a dynamic sense, sometimes gently, others with chaos.

These two examples invite us to think to the wind in its wavy feelling, moving hair in a breeze, or the waves on the water caressed by the wind.
