This week, I was finally able to work on my lithography drawing.The concept of the show is making portraits of ourselves in our most private living spaces- the places where we can feel most like ourselves. I started with the image of me lying in my bed, the place that I can feel completely comfortable.
My favorite thing about this medium is the lack of control of the lithography crayon mixed with water. I figured it would be best to accept the drips and let it take over the drawing to some extent. The next issue I had to tackle was incorporating the yarn. I was hesitant to begin with the fear of it ruining the look of the piece. I also needed to find a way to tie the yarn into the concept, so Hollis suggested I go with a dreamy feel. I began weaving the yarn into the vellum so that it would look as if colorful dreams were coming from my head. I really liked how it started to turn out.
