In person I like this piece better, bad photo! You can’t really see the texture or even the other colours or mark details. Its got various shades of green and brown, hints of yellow and purple, pink and red from the berries. It’s quite bold, if it’s to much I could turn it round and use the back.

I let the calico dry and air a bit but it still smells really bad!. Quite pleased with them, I don’t really know what to do with them now though. They’ve all got different marks and textures so it’s kind of easy to tell the difference between them, kind of lol

This is just a tester of how the large piece of material will look, it’s only been to one location. I quite like the idea of natural elements making the marks on my work, I’m just kinda helping. This isn’t the material I want to use, I’m going to use calico as its a natural material and will hold marks better due to the fibers.

I’ve decided to go with the natural world brief. When I first started thinking about it I wanted to do locations sculptures with natural found objects but as its started to develop I quite like the idea of a 2D piece or pieces. I’m going to visit 7 places and take one piece of material with me (this will be taken from place to place) and a smaller piece of material specifically for that location. I intend to make marks on both sheets of calico but on the larger bit im going to bury it, hoping it will make some interesting marks! I’ve been looking at Christo and jeanne-Claude aswell, so im going to try and cover/wrap certain areas at every location, kind of to protect or preserve nature.
