The Natural Contrast Series was born through the desire to experiment with shapes, various color application methods and various stenciling methods just to see what it had to teach me. The common thread in this series is the color scheme and each piece celebrates some element of nature.
“Aqua Infinita” is Latin for Water Forever or Endless Water. Only 3 editions of were printed. The waves and sky were first laid down on the paper by hand, using brushes, brayers and sponges through a hand-cut paper stencil. The color was layered over several days until I was happy with it. Then Cyan blue was screen printed on top, and black was printed below, then the white outline of the nautilus was added over top. The drips were added by hand after.
