    Alja, I'm mesmerized by the interactions between the colors and the directionality of the lines in this piece. Though the print is physically small, I feel something vastly different as my eyes move from place to place across the piece. It is evocative beyond the simplicity of its structures. I love that you have broken down concepts into their building blocks. Why do you think it is that we notice the color first when it is lighter and the shape first when the shade is darker?

    • Uji, thank you very much for your kind comment ๐Ÿ™‚ I really love the combination of drawing and color. And sometimes is such a small line between drawing and "painting". I love to explore these borders ๐Ÿ™‚

      My master was about the color and drawing, so I was comparing the same plate (prints) in different color. First I printed primary colors, and then I added white color, and when I was comparing them (alltogether), they were different, (of course they were different because, the color was not the same, but the plate was), so during my researce and study I figured out, that when the color is strong, also the shape of the form (for exsample if we are looking one dot) is of course clearly seen, because the color is strong, and when I brighten the color, the shape of the form looses strenght, especially if the paper is white. Of course I also have to think about that ๐Ÿ™‚ And because the form is not so clearly seen, we are "looking" what colour was used and than the shape.

      I hope that I aswered your question. If you have any futher questions feel free to ask me. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Best ๐Ÿ™‚
