88. I did this drawing on Pendine beach in Wales. I used a hay broom that i found to make the marks on the sand. I enjoyed doing it because you had to use more of your body to complete the drawing rather than just your hand.
89. I think i will work back into this sketch.
90. Finewriter on corn on the cob skin (leaf).
91. This is a soldering iron that i drew for my new technique, which was Pyrography and is going into a zine that will be made for uni.
92. These are the tools that come with the iron.
93. My first attempts at this technique were on small pieces of drift wood. I hand drew the results because the zine is in black and white, so the detail would be lost if i used a photo.
94. This was inspired by a technique that Lynne Butt uses in her sketchbooks where she layers up paper and then adds a watercolour wash to the edges.
This link tells you all about how she works. I found it really interesting.
95. I made my own lines with this piece of card by folding a design into it. It worked because when you fold the card, a raised edge appears across the corrogated effect of the card.
98. I was experimenting with a variety of alternative drawing tools, such as plastic knife, plastic spoon and fork, thick card, cut edges of card.
99. I apply the paint to the paper first and then use the tools to blend and smear the paint.
100. This is a print taken from drawing 101 that i took when the paint had only just been put on the paper.
101. I used a plastic fork to scratch the surface of the paint. It leaves a really unique texture and helps to blend the colours very effectively.
102. The paint was applied in a swirl which i then went over with a piece of card in the same direction, then i used a piece of corrogated card to print the pattern with tthe excess paint already on the paper.
104. The way these pieces were placed reminded me of a dolphin.
107. Printed with acrylic and then machine embroidered.
108. Lino printing.
109. Lino printing, this is the shadow that a building cast when i was on holiday in Hamburg.
111. Lino print on corrogated card.
112. Printed straight after i did the corrogated piece which is why there are extra lines on this piece because these are the areas where the ink has been removed from the previous print.
113. Charcoal on card that had been painted.
114. A design that was on the walls of a church that was in St. Fagans, Wales.
118. Having rolled the ink on the piece of lino, i used the roller straight on the paper to see what design was left behind. I also then drew back into them.
