This is a very important exercise to experiment and explore different media showing the ways in which they behave on different textures and surfaces for drawing and painting.
Here I am showing the different images of the same object that I have produced in many different ways.
I have chosen a banana with a bite taken out of it.
The first picture shows the different materials that I used for these pictures collected together with a bulldog clip.
The next two pictures show the banana painted with water colour on to a plastic surface.
Then I sprayed some water on it and stuck it on a window.
This next picture shows the banana in a Gouache style on kitchen roll.
After a little bit spray water.
Felt tip pen on post it notes.
After using rubber to smudge it.
Children’s felt tips.
Gouache on black rough paper
Gouache on a information paper
Collage on the packaging I had from a plant I purchased
Collage on a toilet roll (trying for 3D effect)
Collage on a toothspace packing (3D)
The last two pictures I have drawn 3 bananas on a sketchbook’s paper then I made a 3D banana model with pieces I had cut from a washing up glove.
I liked this task a lot. I will continue to try new methods in the future.
