I’ve been using a lot of masking tape and paper to block out sections of work as I paint. In some ways my intention is to give up a degree of control as I paint, and allow unexpected things to occur. I’m trying to stop worrying about making a good painting, and hopefully I can learn a few things.

Tearing up books. da Vinci.
One of the books I used for collage was a book about da Vinci that I picked up at the library sale. I used the text as well as the images from this book, and I tended to prefer the black and white images the best. I’ve never been a huge fan of da Vinci, and I have a couple other books in my collection about him, so I didn’t mind destroying the book.
