Sometimes I like to just take a colour and begin to make marks. My water-soluble crayons work perfectly for this as they lend themselves to swift, expressive gestures on the page.
I often find myself beginning with a spiraling line, and I tend towards some form of symettry, so when one orange line had formed, the other swiftly followed.
More orange flowed from my crayon and surrounded the shape, laid thicker in some places, and then overlais with yellow in others. The yellow spilled into the white space and filled the gaps, pouring like sunshine across the page.
I discovered a smile on my face as I watched this angelic heart take shape.
