Mark Making with Helen

Over the course of three weeks, we experimented with different mark making techniques. During the first week we looked at basic painting techniques, using different papers, paints, inks, palettes and brushes. We experimented working on wet and dry surfaces, using resists and a number of different painting methods including blowing, splattering and dropping ink. During the second week, we used mixed media, testing methods including drawing with a knife or scissors, Painting with positive and negative stencils. Lastly on the third week we looked at paper manipulation, experimenting with different folding techniques including pleating, tearing and scrunching paper and then applying the previous week techniques on top of the paper.
