|An art exercise in Automatic Drawing ~ titled ~ Yin and Yang|
For Paint Party Friday
Welcome to our artists, poets and photographers display. The photo above is an art exercise in 'automatic drawing'. This is normally done on a much larger scale and with a paint brush. I chose to use my pen and then paint it with watercolors. The idea came from a book the art class teach shared with us in exploring abstract painting. The book is excellent for many reasons and is entitled EXPRESSIVE DRAWING by Steven Aimone with subtitle, A Practical Guide to Freeing the Artist Within. Loaded with step by step exercises to motivate you to just 'let go' and explore from within on paper using your medium of choice.
