I have been working on a few watercolours of late. The contraints of having no studio walls to paint on have certainly challenged me a bit. Full scale I like to paint around corners, so I am investigating this idea with the shapes I’ve been working with for some time now. There’s more to make with cardboard boxes, but I wanted to do some watercolours also. So I tore up some watercolour paper and sewed a small book.
A little sewing on the sewing machine and bam! You have a purpose ‘built’ watercolour book.
I need to make a few more of these, experimenting with colour, page placement and documentation. I love that they function as sort of sculpture and not a book with pages to be fliped-through. All pages are meant to be viewed at once. I could also look at the shape of the book. There is no reason why it has to be rectangular.
