Extended drawing - small decisions

Getting work together for the end-of-course exhibition. If you're in the Holborn area on Tuesday 21 June, 6-8pm, drop in to City Lit, 3rd floor, for a glass of wine and the private view.

Using a 5cm square to assess the size of paper needed for printing onto -
 In the end, various A4 papers were on hand, which made for an easy decision in terms of size at least.

Meanwhile the digital drawings went through a couple of metamorphoses. First, collated into a sheet of squares, adjusted to be monochrome. I'm trying to make the drawings look as simple as possible, to strip their information right back - from the photograph to the selected lines of the drawing, and then presented in a simple way. This compilation is for printing out, cutting up, trying out in book form, perhaps stitched into a concertina book -
But the main work is even less complicated than that. Each image was first inverted to look like a "negative" and then printed [thanks, Mary!] at 5x5cm size on a thick, creamy paper with a bit of tooth. Five images should be enough to fill the display case -
The display cases are 115cm wide, which will accommodate five sheets, but four might look better. To be decided on Monday.

How interesting these look! I've really enjoyed watching your thought processes develop through these. I wish I could come and see them but I'll be in Scotland with visitors and no chance of escape!
