Scribbles On Scribbles

20 Aug

Step 7

Building on top of what I did yesterday, I scribbled randomly with a white Daler Rowney soft pastel, instinctively concentrating the marks towards the centre. Then I added small amounts of colour – yellow, rose and blue. I don’t know how I’ll use this yet, I might rip it up for collage or I might draw or paint on top.

I like the close up digital images I’ve taken. Of course, I could work on this digitally. It’s something I don’t often do but there’s no reason not to. I’m out of my comfort zone here but taking a lead from the Surrealists who used to do creative exercises like this to help them to work from their imagination instead of relying on working from life. It’s an interesting process.



A lot of my artwork is available on my Artfinder gallery.  If you’d like to have a look, please click on the image below or the Artfinder link at the top right of this page.

    It’s a great piece, very freeing to not worry about it being representational.

      Thanks Roxanna. It was indeed very freeing and I’m using these papers in collage now.
