Exploring surface, depth and light

Exploring mark making on translucent and transparent surfaces such as tissue paper, wax paper, tracing paper and cellophane using marker pens of different thicknesses, ink (applied by pen, flicking, paint brushes, dribbling and running), collage and printing techniques.


Layering the surfaces to explore what can be seen through them in different arrangements and layers.


This can be developed and enhanced by using lightboxes and digital photography, and by using torches and other light sources and filming.

More about this at the next meeting on Monday 10th February!

Ideas inspired by the work of Brazilian artist, Mira Schendel and explored by Jean Edwards on her Sketchbook Circle blog.
