Project – Using Texture

Exercise – Experimenting with Texture
The exercise was slightly vague as to what was required and 5cm squares were a little small to get any bodily shape into the textures.

The different surfaces required either a direct reproduction or an impression and I tried to draw the former which often required fine detail.  Furthermore depicting the texture in some instances was hard and was a tricky combination of line and shade.

The frottage element was interesting though the area of the square prevented a full image

Regarding the smudging and dropping of ink it was difficult to know what was to be achieved but interesting effects resulted which could be further experimented on a larger scale.
