In this workshop we concentrated on line being independent of shape. First we lightly sketched out our subject on the paper. Then we would collage random shapes with different materials from paper bags to washi papers. This builds the surface with wonderful textures.
While still wet, we dropped watercolor shapes over the colleged shapes. Anything goes! We experimented with spattering and adding more lines into the wet surfaces.
When the surface dried, we added pen and ink
to develop the focus further.
