I am taking a portfolio building class that I actually signed up for the end of last year… it runs from March to June…May’s assignment was to create a square shaped paisley design.

Then I tried a Carla Sonheim technique to come up with a design for the square (those bits and pieces of color are actually collage pieces:
Then I pulled it into Procreate and played with it some more. I spent a lot of time in the Procreate phase. I added more paisleys and tweaked the color and this is my final piece.
