In this assignment, I hoped to inspire a little bit of childish fun and creativity. I went for a Jackson Pollock feel. I think that this procedure also allowed for a lot of creative freedom in terms of what colors the person following this procedure used and the composition of their artwork. In a way, this activity reminded me of the finger paintings I used to make when I was little because there are no rules. The picture doesn’t have to look like a person or a certain object, it can just be blobs.

I was actually very happy with the result that I got from my procedure. It came out exactly as I wanted it to. It was colorful and bright and made me feel happy. I also added glitter paint and a lot of pink so It feels very feminine and bright to me. I think that this would be a super cool mural on my bedroom wall. Splattering was such a easy technique with a cool result!
