Project 1 Associations Pg 207

Interesting to try out coloured grounds other than those I have used eg: blue
It makes a huge difference as the optical effect is remarkable if one is careful with the later paintwork.
Having spent a lot of time looking for shapes when I draw or paint, expressive brushless painting is experiential for me. Not sure yet if I have the effect I want but I do love the feeling of the paint using fingers. I also love using a card or sponge though I prefer to be sparing with these rather than profligate!
Need to add acrylic medium to engage further with the expressive qualities of the paint than with the subject.... Must try.

  1. Evaluation notes
    I found that using other tools interesting but frustrating because I could not obtain the effects I wanted using this method. Having seen lots of Expressionist paintings over the years Inc the Edvard Munch, My attempts are very amateurish partly because It s not the intensity of response I need but the space and time to respond accordingly through paint. I need to feel the paint and colour and watch it talk to the experience through pencil, paint detail and layers.
