Project 4 – Stage 2 Looking for shapes and drawing


Resource image.  I like the fruity colours on this page of Boden sneakers from Red magazine.

Record of interesting arrangements of shapes.

Exercise 1

I like the bound edges and the lines of stitching in this composition.

First drawing – surface textures

Second drawing – shapes

Third drawing – colours

Exercise 2

Texture speaks to me the loudest with this source material.  Especially the herringbone effect from the topstitches against the weave of the binding fabric.

Exercise 3

Exercise 4

I assembled up a collection of visually stimulating items and used a viewing frame to concentrate on particular areas of interest.

I made a series of quick sketches, concentrating on shape, colour and texture.
