To grow is a challenge.
So easy to remain in a comfort zone, so easy to do wild and stupid things.
As a precursor to my five 'action' paintings I continue my mini collage experiments through the remaining three subjects. (see yesterdays swimming series) At the final count they are reduced to working, swimming, walking, fighting and playing.
The small 15 cm coloured thumbnails are an exercise in diversity. Done at speed with salvaged materials they can throw up new combinations and styles that on careful consideration may prove very useful later.
From these forty sketches perhaps one or two will set the style for the series, this is a combination of planning and random testing that has borne fruit for me before.
