Before I enlarged my work, I wanted to do some experiments in my sketch book to trial which rope I preferred to use. When doing this process, I was surprised of the outcome as I thought initially I was going to like the effect of the thicker rope because it was rougher than the thinner rope. However, in doing these trials I came to the conclusion that the smoother,thinner rope was better due to the swish motion made when mark making. I think this heavily due to the split ends on the smoother rope.

Working Progress

For my next project I would like to in large the scale of my work and the objects I am using. In order for me to do this, I have decided to get A3 sheets of white paper, rocks, rope, Red and Orange paint. As I was inspired by the work of Sam Francis.
