25/1/17 I went to Bath Uni today to visit an exhibition based on the concept of maths and art combined together. I feel that this exhibition wasn't nearly as good as the Jerwood drawing prize and overall it seemed dull. The concept was interesting but I don't think the work portrayed this theme in the best light.

25/1/17 Thinking about different background surfaces and how this influences the piece. I have stuck many of these samples in a sketchbook but feel that some may look interesting in a transparent book where you can see both sides.

25/1/17 I feel that this sample has worked well as the outlines are defined and you can tell what the shape is. I feel I need to carry n making lots of samples to really understand what works best and what doesn't work.

25/1/17 Thinking about windows and developing sections of my drawings into bigger pieces of work. I feel it would be good to make pieces that present abstraction but you can understand what the shapes are representing.

25/1/17 As in this photo the samples can sometimes can very tight and difficult to stitch on. I think this is because I haven't got much of this fabric left and it is not covering the whole of the frame. When I have done samples with plenty of fabric around them it works better and doesn't get nearly as tight.

25/1/17 Continuation of stitch samples  Sometimes my samples are becoming complexly different compositions from my original drawings which is interesting in one sense but can often be annoying.

24/1/17 In looking back at my sketchbook drawings I find the ones which I have enlarged sections the most interesting as they have white breathing space around them. I am going to develop these pieces into bigger pieces of work and have started to make dissolvable stitched samples.

24/1/17 Placing the sample in the water sometimes changes the colour thread into a deeper colour. I do like how the thread transforms from being really tight to lose and free.

24/1/17 After dissolving the piece in water it looks like this. You are just left with the thread stitch lines which I find interesting. I have been experimenting with the length of time that the stitching is exposed to in the water. I think I am making progress on this and I am starting to get a result which I am like better.

24/1/17 Continuation of dissolvable fabric samples I decided to change the colour thread to make a better contrast in my sketchbook. The orange is a powerful colour and I think the pink lines underneath work well in presenting abstract effects.
