Started with some initial experiments, of which the following were the most interesting:
In the first I was trying to use quite heavy blocks of tone in conte to try to get the impression of the scene. I used a grey sugar paper with black and white conte for mark making. Although it wasn’t that successful it did get me started in thinking how to approach the exercise. In the second I started with a pencil sketch, and then was trying to over draw with a fineliner. It was heading in an interesting direction, but needed more thought as an approach. Continue reading “Project 1 Fabric and form”→
I found this session interesting, as it concentrated on tone provided by having a shaded ground and then adding/subtracting. The first is white paper with charcoal, and the next two black paper with white chalk.
Started to draw a rock on a wooden base with shadows as dip pen practice. This approach was suggested as an alternative to fineliner by my tutor. In some ways it was being successful, as the mark making is generating an interesting approach. It was also, however, being very time consuming and wouldn’t have produced a good final image.
