This week was all about representing varieties of texture in different media. We used pens, colouring pencils, water soluble pencils, oil pastels, soft pastels and watercolour paint, working entirely in blue to encourage us to focus on the texture of an object rather than its colour. We discussed the texture of various objects, creating a spider diagram of adjectives in our sketchbooks for future reference. We then had a go at recreating different textures, making our own choices about which media we thought would be most successful for each one. Some groups went on to have a go at drawing some of the objects to put our line, tone and texture skills into practice, whilst others experimented with media on a variety of textured papers.
