My respectfully kept-under-wraps internal response: Well, why did everybody laugh, then?
Today I played the role of cut-up again. To wit:
Grabbed a piece of 6x8" watercolor paper.
Painted a loose background with alizarin crimson, cadmium red, and cadmium red light.
Added collage paper in neutrals.
Mixed up some raw umber and white to knock back some of the brightness on my canvas.
Ran some scribbles through the paint with the wrong end of my brush.
Blotted up portions of paint with paper and a damp washcloth.
Wiped away portions of paint.
Reapplied the some of the blotted paint elsewhere on the canvas.
Let it all dry.
Doodled and scribbled with a Sharpie and other pens.
Traced the ink lines with wax and oil pastels.
Then cut up my piece into four quadrants.
Rearranged the quadrants.
Not sure yet what I'll do next.
