Evolution of my Mexican Art

(etcetera23 in the travel studio)

Evolution of my Mexican Art
etcetera23 on ART TOUR

As we all can see, the Plan of "not having a plan" its more complicated as we sometimes think. Ideas change quite quick and so this goes on.
A 5 month trip from Mexico to Panama, its already 6 month and I not even left Mexico yet. But this is okay... there are no hurries here.After I got stucked in Oaxaca for some time, I finally left to the states of Pueblo and Vera Cruz.In this region was not much tourist traffic so I was more or less by my self and found time to get my watercolourpencils, rulers and pens out. I started to paint a few little paintings.

There was a little evolution here from chaos green paintings to very geometrical forms.
Some people said: "Oh you must be in the jungle, because you paintings are so green" and actually I was in the Cuetzalan Mountains. Good observation people, I havent reconized that myself, in the sense of my works. The later works in this series are much more straight lines and I guess I found influence of a city. I was in Xalapa at the time

About the technique. I find a few helping lines on my piece of paper.
I bring my geometric forms to the paper and do the outlines with a marker. I color the spaces and wash it down with the water brush. Later some background fillings with the watercolor pencils and highlighting with a thinner marker in the end.

 Here you can go and see the Paintings:
