I posted a few weeks ago that I was finding it odd that having a bit more time on my hands and more time at home I was really struggling to make the most of it art wise. I set out some specific challenges one of which was to take advantage of the time by just, well experimenting. I said I wanted to try my hand at some abstract works and I have – not all of these worked out but I like these ones…..
It was quite liberating, making marks without worrying about how the page looked so I started out with marks and acrylics just to cover the white page and to provide depth to the finished picture.
The tough bit was working on the top layers where I had to start thinking about how the finished piece might look but I did think if it didn’t work out I could always use the paper for collage in the future.
And I think that’s what I’ll be doing with the last two pieces although no.4 is growing on me
