Words to live by! As J.M. Barrie Wrote "Fairies have to be one thing or the other, because being so small they unfortunately have room for one feeling only at a time. They are, however, allowed to change, only it must be a complete change.”
These sketchbook pages are the unequivocal result of effort, passion and enthusiasm. Although 'decoration' is usually unnecessary within a textile or fashion design sketchbook, in this case, the background patterning demonstrates a complete understanding of the aesthetic; a strong personal response to the colours, shapes, textures, lines and forms of the work studied.
This double page includes my own research of Chrissy Angliker who incorporates drips into her work which is either composed of portraits, landscapes, shapes etc. Since this is the basic theme she uses throughout her work i found it very inspiring in terms or the lively effect it creates. Because she uses vibrant hues, i found it exciting and worth being influenced by in my developing work.
