This is the first day of my residency at Layby Farm. I painted an A1 piece of paper divided into 6 sections, ignoring the divisions as I applied the ink and crayon. I subsequently cut the paper up into the 6 pieces. I also painted some papers ready to use for collage.
I used my textured papers to create a collage based on a photo I had of peeling bark. the techniques I used were tearing the paper, scrumpling it, piecing and patching, rolling and folding. I have made a surface that is in relief and made of a variety of textures.
These images have been cut from the large painting. I will add further details to them using crayons, inks, paint or collage.
