|16" x 20" Watercolor, ink|
The large black background in the center panel owes more to the fickle gods of fluke than any sort of skill or planning on my part. I had no idea what to with that large space and, in the end, decided to make it all green.
Weeeeeeell, it looked like crap.
Then, I decided to add some textural elements using India ink.
It looked worse.
Finally, I just doubled-down and decided to black it all in...I needed to drink a beer before I could bring myself to do it. I think it turned-out alright, and the contrast with the Hebrew text is just what I was shooting for.
