Playing as a creative process

Most of my recent drawing has been about exploration, in that I am exploring techniques, materials and processes. I guess all artists do this, but I sense that all of my work, is, at present, a work-in-progress, ideally leading to some form of thematic or technical resolution. 

I’ve always been a fan of collage and mixed media and some while ago I created to canvases made up of scraps of paper consisting of pales tones. I really liked the way they look and the warmth of the ground. I’ve been mulling over what might be a next step. Yesterday, I made up a new set of scraps stuck to paper and quite spontaneously set about drawing on it. I really like the feel of this work and I’m going to take this further, perhaps bring in some other subtle elements.
