I'm breaking away from my usual techniques with new ways of working. The issue for me is that the way I often work can be too precise. This can cause me to spend too long without working and induce block. So I'm limbering up with a looser approach both in application and in materials. I may not stick to this but for now it's good.
Sometimes I buy art materials with one intention and then forget what it was only to use it a year or so later for something completely different. I found, as a result of this, some natural paper tucked away and slightly damaged. This was perfect for some experimentation.

Here are some more images that capture some of the textures not seen in the whole foto above.
