Painting from a Height

I felt there was a sense of freedom with doing this as there was no right or wrong way I could drop the paint as gravity would decide the way it fell and it was not in my control the paint was given a life of its own to act like paint. Our group chose red, black and purple and all of us had a colour each to drop. I found that the way the colours fought with eachother and blended in other areas was really interesting as the painting progressed with many different layers forming a blood-like stained sheet. Overall the outcome I feel came out aggressive and quite visceral.
