I used acrylics, as this is what I had, but experimented with only using palette knives of varying sizes/shape plus other mark making implements – bits of card/cut up credit cards, small plaster cleaning tool and a large household paintbrush. I did a very rough sketch of a landscape but was more interested in the gestural marks than representation. It’s a mess but it was an interesting exercise and thought provoking.

    Not a mess at all Lyn, I really like the range of marks and the lively surface
