WIP Wednesday: Proof of Life

I’ve been fortunate this week to attend two workshops by Dina Wakely, sponsored by Ink Rubber Paper in Overland Park KS.

Tonight’s class was squarely in my sweet spot: Marvelous Mark Making, which involved making random marks and finding art within them. We started by using a stick and a string to make random marks on a page. Then, we looked for the hidden image within and brought it to light using color.

It’s no surprise that I found a cat, a bee, a bug, and an owl.

The technique is similar to the one I use for doodling: make a loose, random scribble in pencil, then add and remove lines until the critter presents itself.
