Print1-Sketch28In my recent lesson Tony suggested I start taking a colour pull of each print range and record the mix so I can replicate when I want.  I also took a print ‘rubbing’ by placing paper over the lino and running the roller over the surface.  I like the idea of this on fabric.

Print1-Sketch29Sketchbook preparatory work for project 6 has been previously recorded.

Looking at the above it doesn’t feel like I’ve done much drawing.  This is something I need to work more on.  I won’t improve if I don’t do it often enough and it’s a great way to create ideas anyway.
