In week three we explored ways of putting paint onto paper. There were sticks and erasers, leaves and pieces of cardboard. And bubble wrap–I mustn’t forget the bubble wrap. To provide some coherence to the work, each person worked with a palette limited to three colors. Some folks added a fourth for accent or emphasis at the end. I am once again thrilled by the creativity displayed–how many different ways there are to lay down paint, and with what wildly different, yet all exciting and interesting, results. Next week–collage!
