Making marks in an expressive way – exercise 1

A Creative Approach — Project 1 Marking marks — Stage 2 — Exercise 1 — Making marks in an expressive way

Stage 2 – Exercise 1
Making marks based on the words: fast, slow, hard, sharp, soft, delicate, bumpy, smooth, sensuous, sad, happy using a variety of pencils

The first exercise we had to make marks using the theme words. I did this in my A3 book. For this exercise I used an HB pencil, charcoal, and a watercolour pencil

For the first page, I tried one square for each word:
markmaking-full01r

Then I changed to using one A3 page per word for a few selected words.

fast:
markmaking-full02r

slow:
markmaking-full03r

hard:
markmaking-full05r

fast:
markmaking-full06r

slow:
markmaking-full07r

fast:
markmaking-full08r

I retried this exercise on 7th July after watching the introduction videos on “Introduction to Art” course on coursera.org.
