Nowadays there has been much publicity on creating artwork by using items found, such as shells, fabrics, and more. In two-dimensional art, the term “found” is also utilized. Beautifully defined by Robert E. Wood, “found” color is creating unique luminous color mixtures directly on paper or canvas.

What a thrill!
