After a personal visit to The Sculpture Park in Farnham I wanted to implement some of the ideas that I had gathered as a result of the visit.
The main ‘theme’ that I came up with from my visit was ‘mark making in the landscape’. I decided to have a quick experiment with this to see what sort of things I could come up with.
I decided that one of the easiest things to try out was to take sharpies out into my garden and colour or add details to natural things that I found.
It was actually surprisingly fun to colour items such as leaves and pinecones as well as parts of trees. I think that as an experimental technique it was successful even if I didn’t really like any of the final outcomes themselves.
