Souter’s lack of the strictures of a formal training served her well as she experimented and developed her own methods. In Off to the West we note the distinctive use of techniques of frottage, folding the paper when the paint is beginning to congeal as it dries and pressing the image so
that its form is mirrored on the opposite side. Another method was to place a sheet of paper or some other material into the wet paint and when it was almost dry, pull it away and reveal another layer.
