The first group of lessons in the book addresses working with SHAPE. The instruction is to cover the paper with a number of large expressive shapes . Then, when the paper is covered, scratch into the paint while it is still wet.
I am working in a spiral notebook of mixed media paper that can take wet medium.
The size I am working with is 11 x 14" .
I don't have very much experience working with paint on paper or canvas, but I like the effect of this first exercise.
