Arty Act: Exploring Abstraction Through The Grid

Painting and drawing activity

This exercise is about layering using drawing and painting, with line, colour, space and shape. It allows you to be present in the moment and enjoy a process that simply asks you to trust in a set of steps while making some creative decisions of your own. 



You will need:

  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Eraser
  • A small brush
  • A sheet of paper, A4 max (rough or smooth)
  • 3 x coloured pencils of your choice (light, mid and dark tone)
  • Gouache, watercolour or acrylic (your choice): red, yellow, blue, black, white

Get to Know Paul Williams

My practice focuses on abstraction, gestural mark making and the grid through painting, drawing, ceramics, textiles and installation. Through these processes I make work that is a meditation on and observation of the layered and perceptual experience of moving through landscape.
