As you probably know, I am often inspired by the American painter Nancy Hillis. She gives an assignment that goes something like this: Take a piece of paper, draw six squares on it, and make six marks on each.
And so I did.
I took a piece of second-hand copy paper, took out a few tools. You can see them below.
Then randomly started to make marks. No thinking involved, just doing. I really enjoyed, and in the meantime, I learned to make some new marks along the way.
I first did as Nancy said (putting six boxes on a piece of paper), later I just took six separate sheets of paper, to have more space.
There is a lot to say about this; I will write a more elaborate blog about this later.
Bye! (below you see the photos of the tools I used and the seven examples of mark making studies)
