Here's what developed for me:
|Birds and flowers...springtime.|
I say "developed" because the ideas arise from the painting in a free-flowing manner - as the paint is brushed or otherwise applied. Images appear from between layers or as a result of mark making from sgraffito, stippling, frottage and the other techniques. I found it key for me to be aware of unfolding possibilities from one brush stoke to the next mark.
I guess it's pretty obvious that I thoroughly enjoyed this class :-)
BTW, Carla Sonheim is re-running her online class, "Imaginary Creatures" beginning next week (!). I took this class when it first ran and I highly recommend it.
