Drawing with wire for laminated layers
The first part of this chapter was to create an interesting still life of transparent/translucent objects.
The first composition with lighting applied giving good shadows.
No light applied, no shadows, but the definition on the objects is more defined.
Second composition with light.
The next challenge was to sketch the composition as a continuous line drawing.
The above sketches were worked in marker pens, and oil pastel.
This one was oil pastel and charcoal pencil.
In this set of drawings I was looking at parts of the composition, using a 9b pencil and finally found a satisfying shape in the LHS corner.
Having completed the continuous line drawings I decided to make a watercolour sketch of the composition and also placed a piece of maroon paper behind it to add some colour reflections in the glass.
And a little loose play on the iPad
Next task was to draw my chosen shape with wire, I did this and pasted it to my sketchbook to use for rubbing and printing on farics and papers that will be used in the Laminating technique.
I looked for a colour pallet in some shells that I'd found at Pembrey beach in Wales and an oyster shell collected in France.
I'd already sketched the oyster shell to see what colours I could identify.
Another iPad interpretation.
Lastly I printed a collection of papers and fabric to use in part 2.
