Taking a break from the canvases this week and trying to develop my mark making skills. I decided to take the pressure off and experiment on smallish pieces of watercolour paper (approx A4in size), using a base texture of pasted tissue, with acrylics and inks, and using a few of the marks I’d been playing with, with the aim of achieving freedom with a degree of constraint (if that makes sense!).
Although experimental, hopefully the resulting works may yield a couple worth framing.
Below are a couple of the works in progress plus a few sheets of marks. The feathers are a bit too obvious for my work but look beautiful printed like this.
So delicate on the eye, that one one imagines the wind will blow them away- keep playing .
Thanks Catherine, what a lovely observation, and yes, I definitely will keep playing! Hopefully you’ll be around in May when I take part in Open Studios and you can see what I’ve been up to ‘in the flesh!’ 🙂
Thanks Sandra! and for following my blog 🙂
Lovely and very inspiring 🙂
Thanks very much Chloe!
