Sat down these last few days and did some composition studies for my upcoming mixed-media work. I plan to incorporate all that I have learned with drawing, sewing, printmaking, and found objects. Can’t wait to get started!⠀
After sketching various combinations of compositions, I cut and move around various sized papers which allows me to be more flexible with my thinking. This composition will change, but is a way to get started. Sometimes starting is the most difficult part of my process, so these strategies have helped over the years. Some artist’s dive right in without a plan, but I am definitely a planner.
