i started with three globs of paint on each canvas (i did two simultaenously). Medium blue, aqua and silver. just literally reached into a box of paint and went with it!
i smooshed them all around with a large brush and this was the soft blue result.
these might eventually become a dyptique - who knows!?once the first layer was dry i added globs of yellow/orange pale green and more blue.
then i added some brown and added squiggles and words with the end of the paint brush.
more brown and more squiggles
then i added some streaks of white/buff with the end of the paint brush and some magenta dots
and there you have it... two interesting backgrounds - i'll patiently wait for our lessons from week 2 to find out what to do next!
