stacking irregular shapes
Cutting cardboard or MDF plates into irregular quadrangles.
The possible convex quadrangles are Quadrilaterals, Trapezium, Parallelogram, Rectangle, Rhombus, Square, Kite. I am using any convex one which is not of the 6 regular shapes. Still the most ones do have one 90°degree angle because of the cutting process.
Each quad has two long sides and two shorter head ones.
Quads can be connected head to head, side by side, head on side.
The resulting figures.

improvisation and composition
following the lines, connections and edges versus free contradiction
dense heavy versus fluid colours, spraying, washes
Keep in mind every view has a backside, which might look totally different. Like a mountain is seen mostly from one side because we usually do not fly. Every top has a bottom, and sides, too.
