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.
Trying to find samples of different textures took a little time but gradually they fell into place.
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.
