Am happy with the way the work has progressed, interesting how it has all emerged from recording a space through drawing. Should defiantly try and record in this way more often, I feel photography is a useful and alternative way to record initially. But recording through drawing really helps you to open your eyes up and see the what you are looking at in more detail. Your observation of the given object or place also increases the more you record, you start to notice not just the obvious forms, lines, tones and colours. But I started to make visual connections, with materials, artists and contexts where it could also be placed or used in. These are all which are areas to explore further!
Colour is an area I need to explore a little further at this point. I have worked in Duo-tone thus far. I made the conscious decision to work this way so that I did not confuse my self with the connotations that different colours may carry and communicate.
What i thinks is quite interesting about Zeus is that he looks at shadows in a different way to me, he is not focusing on the shadow as a whole element, rather focusing on the outline. This would be good to explore, potentially looking at line thickness to convey the varying gradients of shadows.
I think the Zeus shadows are very interesting, but they are quite intricate, I think this level of intricacy lends its self to the outline of the shadows been exaggerated. This question that I want to look at now is there any way in which I can exaggerate a very mundane shadow, this would be an interesting place to start bringing colour in to the work.
