I initially did a mosaic in a blue colour scheme, but felt that it had not worked out. I then did another page and pasted over the unsuccessful mosaic as well as pasting small pieces over the whole combination. This overall effect was interesting and allowed me to move towards my final page. 18 by 22.75
SKETCH I made sketches to design a blue chiffon with white embroidery.

RELAXATION CONTROL TEST MARCH-APRIL 2009 DESCRIPTION- WE WERE GIVEN SEVERAL TOPICS A MONTH BEFORE OUR EXAM, THE TOPIC I CHOOSE WAS RELAXATION AND I CAPTURED DIFFERENT ASPECTS OF MY AND I RELAXING TOGETHER. We had a month to prepare 4 prep sheets, and were given 15 hours to prepare our final in the examination hall.
PREP SHEET 1- After a long day, many of us turn to our friends when its time to relax. That level of comfort and relaxation can only be achieved with a close friend. And thus I tried to capture the different activities my friend and I do to relax. I used various media such as watercolour, ink, tea staining and masking fluid. 22 by 28.75
PREP SHEET 3- I made experimental of my friend and myself. On the left, I have tried expressionism. The one in the middle was inspired by Lucan Freud and the one on the right is another stylistic painting. Left- 17.25 by 9.25 Middle and right- 17 by 9
