For a live brief at a local cafe, I had to focus on the visual characteristics that were asked, for example, vintage, old fashioned, bold and aged. I used a vibrant pink ink for the background influenced by Laura Oldfield, i also mixed coffee with the ink to cool down the brightness and to create a more aged look to relate to my client. I used black berol pen to draw with, and Ian Murphy's bold tonal drawings inspired me to work so dark onto the background.

Ian Murphy Moroccan Doorway drawing

Outbuildings - This graphite and charcoal drawing is quite interesting. It has some fine details in it and as well as textures which can only be created through the roughness and softer hatchings and the obvious light and dark.
