I think because some of the collage work I'm doing is so detailed and, by its nature, time-consuming, I've been wanting to do some pieces that are quicker. In line with the three-minute, throw-away poems I was doing for a while over the winter, I've decided to do some sketches with broader strokes in mind. I'll set a time limit and not be too picky about whether the pieces are "done" or not. This flower sketch "works" for me. I expect not all of them will. If the sketches bomb (which I expect some of them will), I can always tear them up and use them somewhere in a collage. Perhaps I'll even combine the quick sketches with the three-minute poems. That might be cool...I've been wanting to add text to my pieces.
Please let me know what you think by leaving a comment here on the blog or on my facebook page.
Off to play with paint...
