Engine Abstraction #17
This abstract train engine varies a bit from the pieces I have completed so far. This collage is actually the first design. I did not use a sketch, but rather used a close-up section and began by cutting out shapes and arranging them on the gessoed hardboard. It is a section of the brake and wheel, and I just improvised until the design looked good to me. It is a little larger than the other abstractions I have completed — almost a square composition. I also wanted to continue with the blue colors in previous collages and challenged myself to use browns, a pigment not usually found on my palette. The numerals were interesting to me as an accent — they add some interest in the design, as do the yellow stripes that were carried over from previous abstractions. The ultramarine blue is a favorite color. I was pleased with the results.
