Using my drawings I made some drypoints which gave me ideas for my final project. I tried colouring one and immediately realised this would be a good way to proceed with my drawing – but using mixed media. I now became excited about the possibility of creating something fresh but aware I must keep in mind the observational work, the sense of a garden and a moving figure. Composition would always be a major concern. The complementaries of pinkish/red and different greens worked well but the drypoint also showed me that tonal contrast created atmosphere.
Now I felt ready to try a preliminary work on glued tissue .
