Gloria J Zucaro's "Day Three Of CJS 2017 with Glyn Macey"

The third day of Creative Jumpstart 2017 was with Glyn Macey.  Glyn talked about how cropping your paintings/pages can improve their composition.  He also talked about using simple tools you have around the house for mark making and how different looks can be achieved when you mix your colors by scumbling, glazing and direct mixing.  In my project below I applied two coats of black gesso over an old painting done on an 8"H x 10"W board.  Then I picked out handmade papers, mostly Gelli prints and applied them over the gesso.  I made circles of the three primaries, red, yellow, blue and tried the three methods of paint application.  Then it was just adding dots, drips and scratches through the surface until I felt I liked the results.
Have a great day, stay warm!
