The way I sketch on paper tends to be mindless and impulsive, each line being a response to the one before. I have taken the same approach with my enameled sketches. I have given myself some starting point themes. Chalk, Charcoal, Conte, Watercolor, Mixed Media, Oil Paint, and Graphite. At this point in the making process my goal is to have at least ten finished brooches in these sub series. These themes are acting as a conceptual starting point off of which colors and textures will be used to create my new sketches. Now that the concept has been discovered I can let go and just create.
