Edges are very important.
Hard edges are generally seen as less desirable than soft or blurred edges. This makes sense to me, because a hard edge leaves no room for question: that's it, the colour/shape ends there, no doubt about it. A soft edge, on the other hand, inspires imagination and possibility.
So, with my usual sense of contrariness, I want to use some distinctly hard edges in this painting!
As you can see, already I begin to soften that edge a little, though... always the delicate balance. I'm curious where this one will go.
And here another work in progress. Looking awkward right now, but my inner vision remains clear and I see the beauty that will eventually emerge. It's in there, just waiting to be revealed!
