Did you manage to make space move?
I am not sure if I made space move as such; the exercises I did in exercise 1 certainly showed how space can be moved visually depending on where the motifs were placed but once I moved onto actual designs I am not really sure. Apart from the drawing I did in Stage 2, Exercise 2 which really did appear to swirl.
What are your thoughts about the drawings you did in stage 3?
I was quite pleased with all my drawings, they were all very different but all worked really well as a source for further development.
Were you able to use your drawings successfully as a basis for further work? Are there any other things you would like to try?
Yes I was able to use the drawings to base further work on, in fact I had to stop myself as so many ideas were coming from them that I think I would be still here in a years time if I hadn’t! I would still like to revisit Lino printing which I have not done for sometime, Sun dyeing and gelatin printing. I would also like to explore mono-printing in more detail.
Now that you have a good working method, do you feel confident that you can carry on working in this way independently?
Yes I am feeling quite confident now that I can carry on working independently. I think it has taken until now to get my confidence back after a while away from study. Despite having the odd wobble during this section I am a lot more excited and confident about the rest of the course now.
