completing 2017 gouache interior 2 / collage from 2014 / by Philip Tarlow

12:07 PM: being sure not to do too much to the delicate balance of white space and color in the second 2017 gouache interior series, i feel i've reached resolution. the way i'm working on these gouache paintings is actually closer to watercolor than gouache. i'm not utilizing the opacity of the medium; rather making thin, transparent applications, creating an overall tapestry of form & color that mirrors the richness of the elements gary & loekie have artfully combined in their interior, reflecting their love for 17th c. dutch genre painting.

14x8.5"/35.5x21cm. collage on paper i just found while searching through my photo collages, dated 5/20/14
