1. From the water photo
|Pencil drawing of the negative shapes in the water photo|
|Cropped and slightly enhanced version of drawing -|
|Squashed to give a different pattern|
I think this one looks a bit 50s
|Tiled on picmonkey|
|I turned the image upside down and alternated it with the|
|This one was stretched and shows an extra feature of the spots and curves, as well as more satisfying diagonals.|
2. From the fish oil impressions
|Fish oil shapes|
I liked the way these shapes were in relation to each other, and the textures they made, and the translucence of both them and the sprinkle over the right hand side.
|Altered using GMP|
I did some alterations to them on the programme called GMP.
I was going to rearrange them like the shapes above, but while I was working on them I thought that what I actually wanted to do was explore the inner colours and textures a bit more.
3. From roots picture
|Pencil drawing of roots inspired by|
photo of tree fern. I think it has
the dark mystery in it that roots can have.
|An attempt to capture the contrasts of shapes and textures.|
|Picmonkey collage using drawing.|
This is too regular to represent the tree fern itself, but looked interesting.
4. From waterlily leaf
|I like the clear edges of the shapes combined with the clear colours.|
I made a stamp out of formy.
|Then I tried the stamped shapes in a more geometric pattern |
and a better contrasting background colour,
and it ended up looking like buildings on the side of a steep hill.
