Playing with Sponges - Two Works in Progress

Today it is still snowing. So far we have another four inches more on top of the six inches that were already on the ground from the storm that went through earlier this week.

Using a sponge and French ultramarine blue I put some random marks down on the paper and tied them together by using the end of my brush to mark the paper and allow the paint to run into the marks.

With the next one I placed marks almost side by side, turning the sponge slightly each time.

It should be interesting to see what I can make this into, either snow covered branches, or turn it and make it into waves.

I will post these paintings at a later date once I decide what I am going to do with them.
