Mark-making 10th November – Paper Manipulation/ Simple Items from Nature/ Lines, Grinds and Geometrics

Paper folding, making lines, drawing from natural items and experimenting with bleach.

Monday’s lessons was all about the different ways of creating grounds, working with different papers and paper manipulation; looking at how different marks are created by the way in which paper is folded, torn or scrunched. I looked at painting grounds after having folded paper, as well as folding paper and then painting with different tools and colours (liner brushes, round brushes and a ruler) on different grounds and papers. I also experimented with using bleach, on painted surfaces and on different papers, using the simple items from nature that I had brought it, I started to use the bleach on some of the different leaves and printed these onto different paper, thinking back to last week and using the stencils.

The previous painterly mark-making lessons have helped to influence my thinking during Monday’s lessons and during the dye workshops on Tuesdays; thinking about the colours that harmonise, compliment and contrast as well as how I can manipulate not only the papers I’m using but the fabrics that I’m dying.
