Yesterday, you saw the first page I am working on in my new sketchbook. I had done a watercolor grid on the page, as an underpainting.
The next thing I have done is to add texture to the color block using handwriting. Each block is a description of one of the main elements of art. They are: line, shape, space, texture, repetition, value, emphasis and color. The actual text comes from the book "Abstract Art Painting: Expressions in Mixed Media” by Debora Stewart.
