This one asked me to work from visual sources which I used a postcard and magazine adverts. It was a ‘textural study’ so the idea was to capture the ‘feel’ or ‘idea’ of something rather than just copying. I found that easier in some cases than others. Especially the advert with the chandelier and mirror – I think I found it so beautiful that I didn’t want to ruin it by changing anything – I think I should have pushed the boat out a little more on that one as my results were a little ‘blah’!
