Pomegranate, Shell and dried flower

Drawings using the golden section.  I really enjoyed this task. It took time to work out the correct measurements for the golden section but once done we were able to recreate our drawings on a larger scale. I used pencil lightly to draw my subject then applied quink ink, bleach and water. We were shown a variety of ways of applying the quick ink and bleach from using bamboo to string.  I used the end of a ruler to create the marks on the shell. I found this way of drawing very effective and was able to produce the drawings quite quickly.

This task was all about the golden section. It was a guide to where my subject should be placed in the composition – visually satisfying of all geometric forms.
