Exercise 7: Exploring Drawing & Painting

For this task I was asked to make an alternative sketchbook.
I collected paper and card of different textures colours and thickness, and used a combination of conventional and alternative drawing tools. I believe this exercise was to explore the different mediums, again I did not focus on accuracy or producing anything too finished.  I went experimental and had a lot of fun and enjoyment trying new approaches.
Out of the suggestions offered I decided to use cake as my subject, This afforded me some variety, although I mainly stuck to muffins as these seemed more distinct and easier to describe with a few well placed marks.
