Often to achieve an image rich in interesting space and textures, I find the addition of items from “off the palette” will add inspiration.
I build collections of hand painted, and hand made papers, to combine with bits of cloth, paint, inks, wax or graphite on a painted surface. Finding relationships between unrelated materials becomes the challenge. Seeking to connect elements through color and added line or pattern, I feel less attached to the outcome while liberating the unexpected.
