Chapter Eleven

Design from Landscape

It is not ideal to skip chapters (and go back later) but I have a tutorial next weekend so hope to discuss the design of my end of module resolved sample.

As my design source is taken from cliffs and rocks I have decided not to introduce any colour but to keep to shades of black, white and brown.

Flat textures

– I chose to use bleach on black paper for this exercise.

11.1.1 11.1.2 11.1.3 11.1.4 11.1.5 11.1.6 11.1.7 11.1.8

Relief textures

Image 11.2.1 – sample ideas
  11.2.3 11.2.4 11.2.5
Images 11.2.2 – 11.2.5
I have brushed some diluted walnut ink over these samples

Use of shape

Original image together with the divisions in white stuck to black paper

11.3.1  1.6.2
I like this and think it could be used for this project

11.3.2 1.1.3
Whilst this was one of my favourite images I think the divisions are too complex for the project

Again I do love this image but there are too many sections

11.3.4 1.2.3
This is also a possibility but making fewer sections – see below

  1. Lovely interpretations, looks like you are moving on to even more great images...
