With the challenges I’ve been doing them in a handmade sketchbook made from junk papers that I’ve used to mop up paint or clean a brush or roller when making monoprints or monotypes. Since the paper was already marked up with paint I could do a careful drawing and not worry about how I painted it. The result is a loose look that I like very much. So, the AHA moment – why not put some marks down on a larger sheet and do the same thing.
Next week I’ll be in Harbor Springs, one of my two annual art retreats with my friend Terry. She doesn’t have a web presence for her art so I can’t provide a link. However, I can tell you she is an excellent pastelist.
I’ll post the results of my week when I get back – good or bad.
