In the Studio

Material Matters, Sketchbook Work

Today in the studio, I was trying to experiment a lot more and really try to get out of my comfort zone. My style of work is quite detailed, bold and graphic and I think this is because I have become very comfortable with media’s such as: Fine-Liners, Coloured Pens, Pencils, Sharpies, Paints and Ink’s. I feel as if I have more control over them as I really like to create exactly what I want in a drawing instead of making a mistake due to my media – such as, chalk smudging etc.

So here is a little peek of what I experimented with today! My inspiration for my drawings so far have come from crystals and rocks that I had bought from a shop in Glasgow called Opal Moon. Excellent little shop for my theme! Here is a few photographs of my objects and some paintings/drawings that have related!
