In week 4 of the course we looked at creating and using your own painted pages which was led by Effy Wild. I love creating pages and find that they don't normally last long in my studio, as I always find faces emerging out of them and end up painting them. I decided to do my own thing for this lesson. You can see last weeks session HERE
I treated the page as if I were creating a background page with different elements, shapes and colors. I then kept adding different layers which sometimes covered up the layer below or allowed them to show through. This is a technique that you can get using tissue paper on a page, the underlying image will come through.
The more layers added the more it began to mimic my feeling of being surrounded by things that needed to find a home. I had to force myself to stop as I kept adding doodling and crowding it out, then covering it with paint and then going again.
