Paint Scribbles!

We experimented with making paint scribbles or masses using different brushes as well as a heavy body (thicker paint out of a tube) and liquid acrylics (thinner and flowed from a bottle). I was able to detect differences in the marks based on these variables. Again, the goal was not to come up with finished work but to experiment and observe what happens with each tool and paint.

Here are some initial experiments using different tools. Different tools create different scribbles.

The next step was to make 3-4 scribbles on new paper. The scribbles were to vary in size, color and character. After the initial scribbles were placed, time to add 2-4 lines, scribbles or patterns that were explored in exercise one.

This was a great way to begin to think about how all the marks on the page could relate to one another and also the importance of white space in a composition.
