This is a great example of what I call mono shibui. The foundation is made on a glass surface and then lifted off...It gives depth. behind the action art.

I began in 2011...it fascinates me. Try it! With your skill... If you look on my site you will see I think work by Gina Labrecque who has done some totally amazing things with Shibui!

I love this. The colors are nicely blended.
Pejj NUNES 27 months ago
I approach it this way...I think of how to make it have perspective, depth, dimension, and create a road map for the viewer...Color will do this...These feel like they are engineered...like when you paint on glass...you have to give in and let them tell you what they need...the lines are simple....What you find is not complete...it is like finding something in the clouds or a stain... Your mind finishes it so you can say that looks like a.... Skills do not matter...although if you have them the contribute much. Just following the edges of the watercolor makes for a beautiful Shibui. I use watercolor, any wet medium will work, watered down acrylic or ink... then micron pens...05 and 005 my favorites...black. The last phase is done with pastel pencils. I plan to do inktense as well. Make my own inks from natural things...not sure how archival they will be. I use watercolor paper and print making papers.

Excellent use of the accent color yellow - leads the viewer right through the composition.

beautiful combination of colors
Pejj NUNES 32 months ago
With this I started with Payne's Grey as the base color. The platter is done with straws. I love the randomness of action art. Some images are just what they are this sort of explosive nature. The trick is how to get depth of field. It is reverse engineering of a sort. You know the outcome of traditional work. However...the rules if you will of shibui often are (1) every thing happens down the middle of the page...and (2) can not be erased...it has to "just be" It does not mean its a bad thing...whene view from a viewing distance it reads right as a landscape....up close its a where's waldo of the shibui mark.

Great! The process sounds so similar to watercolor ... it actually paints itself!

It is watercolor tints, or ink at times. I just go with what it tells me...it is great if your stuck on what to create.

Pejj NUNES 32 months ago
Thank you ever so much this is the very first found image art which is part of the process. The beginning step is made through action art. This still amazes me! If you could look up close you will find these oddities, which you can not erase, these must exist...they hide. One rule if you will is "If you can not turn it into something...it has to hide or be there!" This is a part of a project which in the end I hope will help a lot of people. I hope to find other artist to try Shibui for my project. Details working out.

This Shibui. I was able to take it to another level. That is how it works, not all shibui work out this way. I never know what I will get! But I love it when it kicks the brain into something like this! I hope I never lose the surprise of what is there!

Biography
A bit about me! Hmmmm.... I have been an artist for...46 years, wow! Selling my first work at 16 years old. This was a sign for a well driller. I don't think he used it outside as it was too pretty! LOL  That's a while back...
 
Art is a compulsion, a need to create for me. In addition to art I have written poetry, with two being published. I have children's book projects in the works.
 
After years of doing oils, pen and ink off and while being a farm wife and mother. I went to the University of Maine August for 3 years, and finished my degree 3 years later at the University of Southern Maine, a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, concentrations in printmaking, drawing, (photography lacked one class...colored photography...moan.) I began my degree program with the goal of a Masters in Art Therapy. 
 
I have a variety of interests which include the following: Psychology, art therapy, interpersonal communication, philosophy, behavioral sciences and anthropology. Science and Physics which I love to read about. (Fascinating!) Myths, writing and poetry. Reading or listening to the classics.
 
I have been an advocate for those with Tourette's Syndrome, I gave a lecture to bring awareness about TS to my community and to bring national support through the Grange to encourage support Tourette's at a national level, as well as locally.
 
I am also an advocate for Domestic Abuse. Though it has been a while since I been involved. In the 1980's I developed a support group call The Parenting Connection. At that time I was invited to be on the Penquis Abuse Counsel of Maine, and given a certificate by Parents Anonymous for the development my group because of how it supported people in need. The program was very different from other programs because it brought in various professionals [...]
