So, the story behind this artwork:
I use plates (that my mother and I found together at thrift stores) for my palettes. While working, I scatter color on the plate and when I’m done, I clean it all off. But recently, the spread of color looked pretty cool and there was enough of it left over that I figured it would be a good texture for an artwork layer in the future… so I pressed some heavy drawing paper onto it and set it aside.
Later, once dry, I scanned the plate pressing and combined it with another layer of pencil and ink scribbles, then edited it all digitally with some actions and color changes. I had a lot of fun making this!
