Tuesday Tips and Techniques: Create a Series

Monet did it.  Picasso and Matisse did too, among others.  Create a series.  Monet created 250 oil paintings of  his beloved water lillies.  Picasso stayed in the blue period for over three years, and Matisse created 20 of his large paper cut outs after his illness.  Why not try creating a series of your own?

Choose a technique, medium(s) and a color palette and experiment on your journal pages.  Maybe the technique will be the main focus of your work, or maybe your chosen focus will be the mediums or colors you choose.  Whatever you decide to do, dedicate some spreads to exploring something specific.  You might even learn something new!
