Similar to the last project – textural studies except with real objects rather than just images. I’m going to stick photographs of the objects (a flower, a leaf and the dilapidated paper cover of a saw) next to these images on the A3 sheets. Again, I found it hard in some cases to ‘let go’ of just copying the object and in other cases I wasn’t happy with the actual result.

I like individual qualities of some of the work I’ve done here, and I can definitely see how elements of each might inspire further work so I’m not completely downhearted about this exercise.
