Exploring Materials

Artwork / Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Making good art takes time and an artist MUST know the materials they work with inside and out so we can push our boundaries but know our limits.

This is a study of materials: papers, pens and textures

I like the toned tan paper but the colors really pop with the white background. Take a moment to explore which colors and patterns you are attracted to most.

The black paper absorbed the ink more than I would’ve liked it to. If I wanted to really make the colors pop I’d have to trace all the lines over again.
