Chapter 2 Designing with shapes and layers

Focusing on the colour palette  selected photos and coloured papers to bring life into the shapes that I would sketch.

These images above from Chapter 1 gave some key highlights of double split complimentary colours taken from 'Colorworks' with the possibility a half clockwise twist of the wheel.

Ref 6.2.1
Ref 6.2.1 and 1a  are taken from Image 2 in Chapter 1 and shows the use of a scrunched acrylic glazed paper as the top image and a base paper of dyed paper using brusho and tissue paper and a handmade paper coloured with acrylic veined print.
Image shows 6.2.1b the two sequences perhaps going through the depths of the water. 

Ref 6.2.1a
Image 6.2.1c shows the two images  photo copied and then cut again - despite gluing papers together I found that small pieces dropped off so photocopying seemed a solution even though the colour was not as per original.

Ref 6.2.1c

Ref 6.2.2 shows the image 4 from Chapter 1. Interpreted in 6.2.2a with a top layer of scrunched acrylic glaze paper placed on tissue paper and sponge printed paper before cutting them up I wanted to record the three papers used to replicate the sketch, shown sideways - had used the line to run through the photo taking the cloud shape down into its shadow in the water rather than breaking it up with landscape.
Ref 6.2.2b
Ref 6.2.2a
Continuing on with images and interpreted shape image 6.2.2b shows the result

Ref 6.2.3
Ref 6.2.3a
Ref 6.2.3 and 6.2.3a shows image  3 from Chapter 1. In these interpretations I wanted to get warmer colours into the palette. I choose a yellow abaca paper stuck to an acrylic painted card, another crunch acrylic painted newspaper and a printed and scratched sketch book paper. Again examining the positive negative images of my sketch. The designs seen in 6.2.3a provided material for cutting and developing new shapes. 6.2.3b showing each sequence separately before turning some pieces upside down and running the two colour sequences together in 6.2.3c
Ref 6.2.3b
Ref 6.2.3c

Image 6.2.3d shows the two sequences cut into shapes and place on a new background- the one used to show bleach effects in chapter 1

Ref 6.2.3d

Ref 6.2.4
Ref 6.2.4a
Ref 6.2.4 and Ref 6.2.4a shows the header image to this module and the papers and in 6.2.4b the shapes.  Keeping this sketch and colouring simple I used a rather random energetic painting technique on magazine paper, I also place pieces of tissue on the wet surface to add texture.  The two yellow papers were, a printed and coloured copy of a limestone wall that was uncovered in a local hall and a printed paper made from a lace edging!
Ref 6.2.4c
Ref 6.2.4b
The two sequences were combined in 6.2.4c but kept within their own group.  Now was the time to interchange the shapes and combine the various colour sequences, Ref 6.2.4.d.  As I played I rather liked changing it to its side and then I tried a gimp adaption.
