Well I have read the notes for Stage 4 Working from your sketchbooks and am a little confused as to what to do. I decided not to think too much about it. I looked through my work and picked out some drawings which I thought I could work on. I then did a series of drawings (studies – what is the difference?) by taking elements of the drawings and simplifying them into line using pencil and felt pen. I was thinking about how they would look as collages or embroideries.
Here they are:
These were studies of texture from my drawings of a rusty boat
These studies were inspired by my drawings of the wooden sign
…and these were from my mark-making exercises
