Random Sponging

5 Jan


I sponged a load of Khadi handmade paper with Indian ink washes and the heavy texture of the paper created some lovely variations in tone and texture. I was stuck indoors today working at the computer so Husb and I went for a walk this evening, in the dark and drizzle. We went down to the beach which was very smudgy and atmospheric in the gentle rain.

When I got back, I looked through the sponged papers until I found some that evoked the atmosphere we’d been walking in. I rubbed some black carbon and white chalk onto parts of it. I normally work directly from life, so it’s a big change for me to work completely intuitively and at random.
