Part 1 – Exercise 2 – Experimenting with Texture

Started with frottage – trying different surfaces and different materials.

frottage

An example from my sketchbook of using different materials to depict texture.   In this case a ball of wool.

These felt successful int hat I like the freedom and movement in the marks and the way direction of the yarn is rendered in the different materials.

Tried the same kind of think using a stone as the object.   I think these needed greater nuance.   Enjoyed the fact that I was able to depict the weight of the stone.
