I have been trying to play around more. I haven't liked everything I've made, but it's been fun and I learn a lot.
Here I was playing with black gesso, wondering if it would scratch off like tempera paint does. I colored the paper and then painted it black. Scratching the surface didn't work that well. I had to press too hard and the color came off too. So I just played around with making marks and coloring in with cow markers (messy, but fun).
