It is a bit difficult doing an abstract design, having no sketch to work from. I began by choosing some of my textured, hand-painted papers and concentrating on big shapes and colors. It took me a while with the placement of these, adding other shapes and subtracting ones I didn’t like. This is mostly an intuitive process where I edit as I create the design.
Working in this manner with paper shapes is relatively easy. I use a glue stick to temporarily adhere the paper shapes to the support. Placing a mat over the piece while it’s in progress helps determine if my design is pleasing, and I can move shapes around until I feel it’s completed.
