Within the early 1980s, Sol LeWitt started to make use of India ink and coloured ink washes, that are utilized to partitions with smooth rags, a method that creates jewel-tone colours and offers the works a fresco-like high quality. LeWitt steadily utilized the identical methods to this new medium that he had used when working with pencil. He assigned grey, yellow, crimson, and blue ink washes to face in for the 4 fundamental forms of line; grey ink wash took the place of vertical traces, yellow changed horizontal, crimson changed diagonal left to proper traces, and blue was used for diagonal proper to left.
In Wall Drawing 413, LeWitt executed his Drawing Collection IV utilizing ink. Between 1969 and 1970, he created 4 drawing sequence on paper. In every sequence he utilized a special system of change to every of twenty-four attainable combos of a sq. divided into 4 equal components, every containing one of many 4 fundamental forms of traces LeWitt used. The result’s 4 attainable permutations for every of the twenty-four authentic models, that are offered in a grid of twenty-four units of 4 squares, every divided into 4 equal components. In Drawing Collection IV, LeWitt used the Cross Reverse methodology of change, through which the components of every of the unique models are crossed and reversed. When drawn on the wall in ink, the irregular, colourful patterns made by these permutations turn into boldly evident. At MASS MoCA, Wall Drawing 413 is displayed throughout from Wall Drawing 414, a grey iteration of the identical drawing sequence.
