All seems to be going ok with the Computer Design Study Group, what a relief!
We have been looking at texture over the week-end, using an outline drawing of the original picture we chose and basically "scribbling" with our pencils. It seems so strange at first to scribble, trying different pencil strokes to represent texture, but once you let go, it can throw up all sorts of ideas, especially if you transfer some of the ideas into collage with white or grey paper, only.
The New York Skyline doesn't to appear to have much texture, we aren't close enough to see the texture in the bricks and concrete, but some parts felt like pleats, and the windows gave quite a textured feel.
Mm, quite a bit to be looking at after all!
