I spent some hours over the weekend making marks with hard and soft pencils, charcoal and conte pencils, mostly on A3 sheets – experimenting with expressing different words visually, and with the variations in tone from using different pressure and density of marks. I discovered that my marks have a definite tendency to try and become patterns, and that I love the smudginess of partially erased shaded areas.
