Alice Fox Tide Marks book detail | The 'Tide Marks' series explores the marks and patterns of material along the tide line of a beach. Layers of mark and texture are built up with rust print, collagraph print and hand stitch directly into the thick printmaking paper. The pages are then bound at each end of the concertina. http://alicefox.bigcartel.com/category/artists-book #artists_book
Sketchbook refrence work, a page looking into botanical illustration from over the years. I have used a cross section of media including watercolour and fineliner. Using different paper to work on has also been an essential part of these pages as I have experimented on working on sugar paper, newspaper and others. Dimensions: Double page spread in A3 sketchbook.
I love this piece of art as it shows the variation of hands that have been sketched. The effect of this in the format of a sketch book is that you can experiment in lots of different ways on one page to show the reader or the observer how many different techniques have been used to achieve the final piece.
