Exquisite Corpse with Wet Paint

Above: An 18 x 30 inch acrylic painting I made on Stonehenge white. I began with a series of sketches and thumbnails. I blew elements up and composed them into place.

Paper Testing for the Minnesota State Fair Journal

Above: About 6 x 6 inch square of white Stonehenge. I did a quick sketch using a Pentel Sign Brush Pen (about 4 mins.), of Dick. Then I ran away and got some Schmincke Pan watercolors.
