Research-Making Marks


Since starting project one I have also been working on a mark making sketchbook for future reference.


I have experimented with pencils, ink, paint, pastels, oil pastels, charcoal, tea, rubbings, gelli prints, flowers and plants and making my own tools.Project1

I have used ink on wet paper, blowing through a straw, hammering the colour out of plants and using the plants themselves to print from.


I have drawn fast and slow, with my eyes closed and with my left hand to test out different ways of making marks on paper.


It has been fun, experimenting and making a mess, not worrying about the outcome and I feel that this will be an ongoing project, adding different marks to the sketchbook when i use new mediums or tools.
