This was an interesting class (and civilized, regardless of having no tutor). We were supposed to bring in some art materials, and make some marks relating to the new brief of Bui Smoothies (or which ever startup we chose).
I started warming up with my newly found favourite—indian ink and the fountain pen, made some shapes and inevitable splashes, then moved on to the watercolour pencils, water-soluble oil pastels, and also some borrowed tempura colours (first time I used these, they remainded me of gouache).
My last medium was my lovely brushpen, which looks great whatever you do with it, in my opinion.
I did some hand writing and silhouettes of a female carrying a basket full of baobab fruit on her head. I actually really liked it, and decided to work on her shape a bit more. She may well become my main illustration for this project, however, I’ll experiment some more to see what else comes about.
