In the next phase of the Color Stores project I am working on the actual paint swatches and juxtaposing them in a grid pattern. The one I’m working on now consists of twenty-five swatches assembled in rows of five. Above are a small sample of swatches from my process of experimenting with materials and imagery. I tried everything from scratching off the paint to applying colored pencil, china markers, various inks, and paints. The second image is of drawings from my sketchbook.
