Biro Studies

These are some organised studies where I used brio pen to create shadows and highlights across peices of home grown fruit and veg and store bought, also. I assembled the food this way to create a different aproach to observational drawings; this made it interesting to both draw and look at.

I really like these pieces and feel this is building my skills and current project up with detailed drawings and practise on skill before experiments.

Printing

For these experiments, I used actual fruit, cut in half, to press onto a page. This transferred the ink I put on there onto the paper; this created some varied effects especially when I layered the colours and used a multitude of colours.

I then wanted to use actual fruit juices onto a different piece of fruit. I called this confused fruits to convey the meaning of fruits being manufactured to taste and look different to what they would naturally be. I like the way all these prints turned out.
