I started this study with the intent to explore the texture of this paper. It has a rough finish. I rubbed a solid stick of ultramarine blue onto the paper making an ‘L’ shape. I painted small blue and orange dots within the textured pattern formed by the strokes of dry blue paint.
I used an angled brush to paint the curved lines and played with their rhythm and placement. Planes were formed by the two sets of curves. They are set at an undefined angle with respect to each other.
