|I liked this one so much that I made this by layering different colours of oil pastel on top of each other on black paper. I then scraped it off to reveal all the depths of colours. I love the way this glows. It looks like beautiful rust.|
I decided to move onto the next exercise after 'doing' four of my bits of drawings. I certainly think I have learned how to derive designs from things I have made, and how much fun it can be - and how it leads me into trying out new things. (eg the clingfilm trick, which I learned from looking through Arteffects by Jean Drysdale Brown (on the reading list for the course). It has given me a lot more reference samples for my sketchbook. And I can see how it would be possible for me to do more of this independently in future. In fact, I am looking forward to doing it with the other 3 bits of drawings in my sketchbook.
