Mixed media art making
‘Manipulating Chance’ - An automatic drawing using photomontage and mixed media.
This approach to drawing allows you to draw without thinking and is a form of doodling using a variety of materials to simulate mark making, pattern and texture, shape, colour, form, line or tone. The resulting image and composition evolves from avoiding all conscious control over the image. Let it flow!
