Each year I try to do a 100-day creative project. It’s a commitment I make to learning small, focusing keenly and seeing what emerges. It is a time for me to spend a few months practicing. This year from Solstice, 2021 to Equinox, 2022–-I will create 100 quickly made collages and see what I learn about design, palette, mixed media, and opaque and transparency. The 100DAYProject can be found here. #thecreativepractice
So far I’m learning that as I am thinking (a)long, I am working fast, limiting my palette, and mostly playing. What gets made, gets made. I am borrowing heavily from what I learned with Karen Stamper in the course I just finished of hers, Free Up Your Sketchbook and Grow."
I mostly have used hand-painted tissue paper, commercial tissue paper, found papers, black, white, and sepia ink; limited acrylic paints, black and white markers, pencil, gesso, oil pastels, and matte medium. The substrate for each has been watercolor paper.
