White Space


I am experimenting with the watercolor backgrounds, papers and environments, how they appear based on the technical aspects, such as pages cropped to a full bleed (image continues to the edge of the page) as opposed to the more ethereal treatment of some white space around the soft edges of the painted area as above.

These originals are available for sale and the framing would depend on whether you put it under a mat and cover the edges, or take an image like the one above and float it on a mat so that the edges of the paper remain visible, it’s a nice look that to me conveys the idea that the water continues beyond the picture plane into that dreamlike space.
