Whenever I start to paint, I always put a layer of cloth or paper down first on my work surface. As I paint, this layer gathers some of the paint and brush marks from my project. As more and more layers build up on this table cover, it gets more and more interesting. Eventually I will cut it up and use it in collages. The paper above is from my painting session last night, and as you can see, it is starting to get very interesting!
