OK so I've been playing with my phone camera again... I captured a couple of little time lapse videos of the kinds of things I do when working on a new piece.
Sketching with Ruler and Compass
Ok, so it's not traditional "sketching" but for my more geometric work I will some times just "doodle" with a ruler and ompass, playing with sizing , spacing, direction, etc.
Masking off a section of canvas - this time i went over the tape edge with masking fluid, then removed the extra. The masking fluid fills in under the taped edge and gives a super clean line.
