One can speak poetry just by arranging colors well. – Vincent van Gogh


 This is an experiment with white and black gesso over a bright background- thought the above quote from Van Gogh goes well to  it- it's just illegible scribbled. Link it to our (FAVOURITE) POEMS AND QUOTES theme over at

Art Journal Journey

Ein Experiment mit weissem und schwarzem Gesso über einem farbenfrohen Hintergrund - das Van Gogh Zitat - unleserlich gekritzelt - fand ich passend dazu. Gelinkt zu AJJ- Lieblings- Gedichte und -Zitate. ( Man kann Poesie sprechen allein indem man Farben gut arrangriert)

  14. I really like black gesso and think it is under utilized. This page looks great and I like the scratchy writing. It's always a challenge to make lines with white but I have had pretty good success with a medium point (08) Sakura gelly roll pen. I just wish it were waterproof.

  17. I had to read this twice to understand what I was looking at. What a wonderful experiment. Did you mask the lady, or do you really have that much control over a paint brush? Either way, it is gorgeous and clever!
