In Lab One, I was instructed to begin with a circle and some intersecting lines, and then fill in the spaces with a different field of color. Once that was dry, I was to layer on mark making with different colors. I did the first part (sorry, forgot to take a photo of it) but then altered the "mark making" part as I'm not interested in creating abstract art. I used the opportunity to just play with layering the paint, and this is what came out of the process.
I really enjoy drawing without a plan and letting the images appear as I go, so painting in this way really appeals to me. I'm looking forward to the next Lab and will continue to share what I am creating!
