I’m back working with transparent white again. Transparent white layering is something I never leave for long, and have worked with since around 2008.
And I tried some transparent white over Asemic paintings on paper–here’s an example:
I’ve painted Asemic writing in my art for several years now. Some times I go through periods where I don’t create any Asemic writing artworks, but then they crop up again in my work.
For those of you who don’t know, and according to Wikipedia, “Asemic writing is a wordless open semantic form of writing. The word asemic means “having no specific semantic content”.
