Being a frequent visitor to Hastings, a fishing town, you are never far away from boats. More often than not I find myself sketching or photographing the boats along the coastline. With this Drypoint project I have used a variety of objects and methods to achieve my mark making. I particularly enjoyed using music to help me create some of the rhythmic marks, a technique I am keen to revisit.
The rhythmic marks resemble the wild nautical world and the strong linear marks represent the boat.
