Drawing Patterns from Animal Markings.
I should declare that drawing scares me! This chapter has given me much more confidence as I have spent quite a lot of time on these little sketches!
My difficulty is thinking I have to produce perfect representations, as I began to focus on the line patterns rather than the image as a whole I became more relaxed and a lot looser.
I can’t say that I am completely happy with the samples I have produced; the drawing was a good starting point though as when I produced my dyed fabric samples I could see how some of them related back to my drawings. In other samples I saw markings that led me back to find images and produce drawing samples so it has been quite a cyclical process.
