At the end of last year I was once again lucky enough to have my work selected for inclusion in the Ink-Dot exhibition. As with all previous shows the artists were asked to create work based on a theme word and with a specified limited range of colours. Additionally we were asked to use an oval template.
This time the theme word was Resolution.
I titled the piece ‘I Will Get There’
I had a tough time thinking of what I was going to do this time. In particular, I found the addition of the oval template to be quite restrictive. You can see that I took a little creative licence with that element in the end.
I started putting the image together on a Friday but lost confidence in it by the end of the evening and decided to leave it for a day. On the Sunday I made only a few tweaks. I still wasn’t very confident with it but I didn’t want to start over working it. So I then sent it off for consideration and was greatly surprised when it was chosen for the exhibition.
With the perspective of time I am now a lot happier with the image. It did well in the exhibition and sold better than my previous entry the year before.
Ink-Dot is a fun project to do and I look forward to trying out for the next.
If you are interested, the print is still available for purchase from the Ink-Dot web site. While you are there be sure to check out the work of all the talented artists.
Below you’ll see the progress of the image in stages.
