The first module in Nancy Hillis's class titled "The Artist's Journey" was all about mark making. It was a great exercise for me Very freeing. The idea is to make marks without thinking too much about them. Just to sort of go where they take you.
After I did them I decided to cut them up and make some studies with them. I think that some of them resemble totems. They are small, only 6" x 9" but I may like to try them at a larger size.
I really like the way the rust color turned out. It is a mixture of Quinacridone red, Hansa Yellow and Ultramarine blue.
I will try and post each week as the course progresses.
