8 Tiles


8 Tiles
#69/100

I have spent the last few days re arranging the tiles and had hand painted Chinese characters onto four tiles only to finally realize that by turning the tiles over and seeing the beautiful underbelly that I was wasting my time trying to add anything to them. The hands drove me nuts, I've painted them every color and sometimes two colors trying to get them to show up. I opted for a dark black/red/gray to match the caulk on the tile. It shows up great when its over the lighter tiles ~ a gold outline on the hands keeps it showing up when they are predominately over the red part.

I like the underbelly. And the less contrived the more things seem to suit your work. Very cool.
