"Mood Ring"; watercolour, ink, gouache, & colour pencil on paper.
So here's my story, Part 3:
As an artist, I knew I needed to start at the beginning: relearning the fundamentals of composition, design, technique, perspective, colour theory, etc. The good thing about my original training in fine art and graphic design is that I already had a solid background in fine art & commercial art history. I couldn't remember the names of family members, but I could name art movements, type families, Pantone numbers, and describe aspects of the evolution of natural pigments to synthetics for painting & fine art usage.
And as a person with a bruised brain and memory loss, I wanted to explore my ancestral beginnings as well. So I travelled to places around the world that made up my family's varied ethnic and cultural blend: to various parts of Asia, the Pacific Islands, and the Mediterranean.
