Tangent #4: Grid

DY Grid croppedI’ve started a new art journal in an old children’s book. The heavy cardboard pages are just right for messing around with paints — they don’t bend or curl, which means I can really slap it on and work things over and over and over again if that seems to be the right thing to do.

My response to Daisy Yellow’s 4th Tangent tutorial, is this grid collage, painted over a two-page spread,  It’s probably a little neater and controlled than directed by the tutorial, but a lot less so than my typical comfort zone. I used bright blue and yellow Cray-Pas to make the smudgy edges — from an ancient box in my stash, originally a gift from my father, who passed away 30 years ago.
