Friday 11th March. Having spent several days reading through the handbook and dreaming of starting I had a day to myself and could begin. I gathered all the mark making things I could find and my A3 sketch book and began to play. I have done some mark making before but mainly looking at process rather than trying to draw to an emotion. It was a good practice for me as it made me expand a little on the usual marks that I make.
I am happy with the results I did on the day and it inspired me to look back at some mark making that I have done over the last year with my art group. I would like to try Fixative transfer but have no fixative in the house only hairspray, and also rubbing's but I ran out of time, perhaps at the weekend with the kids.
Anyway here are some pictures of what I did with a note of what they are.
