old things re-found

looking through my old university sketch books and found these images of paint stains that have been manipulated stitched and retraced. finding the beauty in things that are mundane and ussaully overlooked , can lead to amazing discoveries and new inspiration.

Experiment with colour 1; ink roller and acrylic paint on paper

journey and playing with photographs

part of the ongoing project series: journey, stated looking at maps and circular patterns especially made by Spirograph sets

found some old photos the other day admittedly not the best photography in the world, but the photo of the dandelion head(above) inspired me to take away some of the colour using bleach to bursts of reds and yellows as if another image is burning though the photograph, the photograph above the dandelion photo(immediately above writing) is of the fish tank in Victoria centre, Nottingham and was taken on a Lomography fish eye camera 35mm colour film. this is very dark but can make out flashes of silvery fish, which I tried to mirror the shapes using bleach to take away the photographic pigments.
