Starting from an azure-green water-like background, a discontinuous layer of pink
has been applied, later dabbed using a large brush on tissue paper, in order to
shape some folds on. Unwrapping the paper, immediately started a "theme": the
azure traces left on canvas, vaguely recalled river water paths, just like aerial view.
Right from the top, pink started shaping wavy and light stripes, on which some tiny
continuous drawings have been applied, from left to right. So it proceeded alike
down the bottom, until the end.
This work's been of large creativity to me, because every time I started painting a
path, it was as if it were a brand new one: graphically speaking, it was different from
the one painted before; the same going for the chromatic level, because I simply had
to care about giving concurrent color contrasts.
The final result came out per se, as if the daily effort had reached the synthesis
automatically. The artwork as finished gives the idea of a parchment applied on
water, just like in ancient maps.
