project 3 - change and decay

project 3: change and decay

Project 3 is now underway. I’ve started later than planned, so it will  finish on 27th February, which gives me four full weeks. I’ve adjusted the title. On the year one plan it was called ‘Time’, but this is just too broad. As it’s winter, I’m going to focus on ‘change and decay’. I don’t see this as a negative thing as decay  is a vital part of the natural world. It can even be beautiful.

Already from the few preliminary sketches I’ve made of things collected from the garden, I’m excited about the richness of textures, form and colours in such things as moss, lichen, rotten apples and bark. These first sketches are in pencil and charcoal.

This week I plan to carry on with exploratory pictures of things from the garden and the allotment, using a wider variety of media and introducing colour. Next week I’ll  move onto images of derelict and demolished buildings and objects in the Museum and Art Gallery.
