Experimentation April 11, 2015


I participated in a creativity workshop today run by Fae Kontje-Gibbs. A good part of the time was spent free writing, but we did also do some drawing/painting towards the end trying to draw in the moment, from a visceral place, not thinking about representation at all, but rather marks on the paper. Tonight I decided to try scanning my drawing and then working over it with layers of color and texture, experimenting with different techniques, looking only at the layers of colors and patterns and how they interact, abandoning realism entirely.
