Stretch the arms, legs & mind

I started painting ideas instead of sketching them. I used large A2 paper and some acrylic paint mixed with a some of water. I was letting the colours and grey tones do the talking. The texture of the paper, the width of the brush and the consistency the paint were bringing out new ideas and forms; rather than me creating them in my head and trying to sketch them.

After the paint had dried I sketched and annotated some ideas over the top with a pen.
