The Mask, The Pearls and the Muckity Technique

Sometimes things get a little stale in the studio and I need to shake it up in order to get my day started. Luckily I have a whole pile of 12x12's to play with so I'm not too worried about marking up a canvas and then hating what I've done, I can just move on.
To begin the muckity process I take two or three colours and then just rub them around, then take one of the colours and make a few lines, usually with my eyes closed. It's pretty self explanatory if you look at the first photo. Sometimes I get lucky and find an image right away and the second photo is what I ended up "pulling" out of one the canvases.
We'll see what comes out of the others.
