Experimental Art: ‘Color Falls’

Color Falls by Karen Gadient, 2015

Sometimes my art experiments don’t end up as I’d hoped―but they’re still colorful and interesting enough to share… so I’ll post these ‘sketchbook’ experiments for you here. This one was a mix of scanned watercolor and ink plus digital doodling. Hope you’ve been having a good March!

It’s not an experiment if you know it’s going to work. ― Jeff Bezos

  1. Looks like a dancer shedding her winter clothes. 🙂

  2. A picture full of life – I love it!

  3. So interesting to look at. The colors feel very digital.

  4. This is wonderful! Sometimes the best ones are the ones that don’t turn out as we expect. At least that’s been my experience.

    • Thanks! Very true, Audrey. 🙂 Seems the more you try to ‘perfect’ something, the farther away it gets from how you want it to go. And when you’re not even trying, good things appear.

  5. This work has an air of Chagall about it, at least to me. Something about the basic form reminds me of his work.

  6. Fantastic colouring you certaintly know how to use different colours you can teach a few artists what to do reminds me of Dali and Miro and other Surrealists

  7. I bet if you asked a hundred people, not one would see the same thing, love this !

  8. a happy dancer in her palazzo pants…twirling through spring 🙂

  9. Well, if this is you art doodling I think you actually drew something subconsciously or maybe it’s me just seeing things? I can see the view of the back of a ram – with the curly horns, but in some kind of technicolour around the horns. Just a thought! 🙂

  10. I like this Karen, I’m seeing a harlequin/clown figure in the centre… and I’ve cut coffee down for a few days!!!! Lovely colours as always 🙂

  11. So imaginative. How very creative, even by your high standards

  12. Has a joyous feel to it, celebratory. Beautiful! 🙂
