Draw, Scribble, Fling…
This week was the week to draw, scribble and fling!
I spent the week using house paint in collaboration with paint-markers and fine pen lines.
The first part of the week I tried to acquire some sort of control over dripping house paint from a wooden stick. Since the viscosity is much thicker than other paints the marks achieved were rather indirect. I then went in to add pen and paint marker lines.
I noticed that the paint line achieved varied depending on how quickly or slowly I moved my hand. I also noticed that the mark was different depending on the proximity of the stir stick to the paper. The left was a faster movement and the middle was slower and closer to the paper. The right was a flicking attempt. It was super fun to play this way.
Below are examples of using paint marker both before and after house paint. Going over the house paint slows down the line making a bit which impacts the mark. 9″ x 12″. I found it was more difficult to be spontaneous and expressive with the lines when they need to move over the house paint.
