My second project of the term! Yipee!!

The Brief:

Surface is applicable to all areas but in its own right it can provide dynamic opportunities; to explore scale, illusion and media application.

This element will provide an introduction to a whole range of hand printing/drawing onto paper and fabric through a commitment to personal graphic skills and media applications. It is therefore essential to develop and utilise personal original visual research in your sketchbook from a theme of your choice as an inspirational basis for the transition and development of ideas. You will be encouraged to fully explore and record these on a whole range of papers and/or fabrics, utilising inherent qualities of weight and surface to best effect by establishing colour palettes and an understanding of scale, format and composition.

I already had some sketches where I was looking at people and movement. I thought these might be interesting to play around with, especially considering the overlay element with print.

Inspired by my older sketches, I took myself over to the castle and spent a day sketching around the grounds...
