I began some paintings and starts of paintings with coloured pencil backgrounds to lay down pieces to work on. I photocopied sketches from my sketchbook onto thick fabriano paper and then used coloured pencils to plan out which colours of paint I was going to apply to each area. I have started to paint some of them but most of them are incomplete and so I am going to work on getting them finished. I decided to do a black and white piece as well as colourful pieces to see how this affected the compositions and to show a development of ideas. I am looking forward to seeing how my project develops in the upcoming weeks.
