texture – lichen
Lichen: ink on wet was very difficult to manipulate although I like the ink blot effect when you can see other things in it – I see a fox poking a stick into something. Watercolour wet on wet worked well and I liked the coloured pencil.
texture – orange peel
Orange peel: I used colour because it helped me think about texture. I felt the most successful was the watercolour stippling which was very free.
Hair: I felt frustrated that none of the things I did looked remotely like the hair I was looking at although they can all be read as hair (maybe not the charcoal one)
I wasn’t terribly inspired by frottage. I used pencil – maybe chalk or charcoal might be more interesting.
