February…

When Nic’s sketchbook arrived in the post at the beginning of february, I was really interested to see that she had started with an underwater theme, with precious jewel-like pebbles and layering, entrapment and texture.

This wasn’t a theme I had used in my own work for some time, and was really looking forward to getting stuck in

My first thought was to photograph the pages and start to play around in photoshop, inspired by the layering and transparency ideas that Nic had begun with.

Developing the nautical theme, I scanned some of the text that Nic had used on the pages, and picked out key words to help me collect images to use.

I found images of fishing trawlers, and even some diagrams detailing the structure of such a vessel, and worked into these images with watercolour paint and brusho.
