Artwork by Shaw consists mainly of sketchbooks (340 volumes) that contain sketches and finished drawings in pencil and ink, watercolor and gouache paintings, pastels, and collages. Most volumes include notes on color, and many also contain poems, drafts of letters, and notes on miscellaneous topics. In addition, there are loose drawings in charcoal, pencil, and ink, as well as paintings in gouache and watercolor, and a small number of collages including a few photo collages. Shaw's writings (Series 3) include a number of manuscripts illustrated with drawings and gouache paintings.
