'Painting' a Sand Dune at Lake Mungo

Part 2. Project 2. Exercise 1. Experimenting.

Part 2, project 2: Exercise 1 Experimenting with surface textures and frottage

For different surface textures, I chose a lemon, a silk scarf, a wire scourer and a faux fur throw.

For the fur, I tried pencil, water colour with brushes, conte sticks, dropping ink (this didn’t work well and resulted in the blob!)  I think a furry effect can be achieved well with pencil using fine lines and also by pressing brushes down on the paper. 182 more words
