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.
