Did I think I would cut it up?
I did not.
I really couldn't quite imagine where I'd go with it.
Until … well, until, evidently, I could imagine.
Or, to put it another way, the blind contour drawing held out a hand to the blind part of me that cannot envision what will happen if I do this or that but just goes ahead anyway.
I cut my contour drawing into a few pieces.
Took one piece and added color with India ink brush pens.
Drew some ink doodles with a different kind of pen.
Tore bits of colored tissue and glued them on.
Did some additional ink doodling with a gold pen.
Experiment entirely to my liking.
