To begin with I couldn't resist making large scale drawings of the place I wanted to represent
|Drawing 1, 66 x 44 cm|
|Drawing 2, 66 x 44 cm|
Then having photocopied the two drawings I pasted the together to create a plan
...reversed so my head doesn't get too messed up while I'm making the plate.
I then threw caution to the wind and sloshed sugar lift onto the plate to give me a starting point
|plate size also 66 x 44cm|
and then two more sugar lift and open bite combinations provided the following stage - a worn, chewed up and puddled surface...
The next stages will involve careful stopping out, but I may also have to burnish down some of the marks which have gone in a bit deeper than I hoped.
