Module VI chapter one

Chapter one
On the following pages you can see some of my water and sky photos for the mark making exercises. I think I choose the theme „Iceland“for this module. I am fascinated about the geology of this island and, after several visits and walks there I was able to watch the negative impact of climate change with the increasing warming of the sea on the population of Iceland's national bird - the Puffin

Plain wax candle and Neocolor I at the botton and a wash from brusho. In my opinion Brusho was too much concentrated, and therefore has glossed over the traces of wax.

The result with aquarel color is much better

Oil paint sticks and then diluted brusho

the smell of chlorine bleach makes me very sick. So I used, a 1% potassium permanganate solution, and lemon juice for the discharge technique

Lovely photos Maren. I can see why you find Iceland an inspiring place. Your mark making interprets them very well. Are you feeling excited to be on the last Module?
