In my sixth, and final week, of my directed studies I have pushed back to more innate mark making that is made in a child-like manner. I have continued my walks, subject matter, and primary goals in mind but wanted to take it a step farther.
With this child method I have begun drawing on things that you are told not to such as old buildings, trash, and words so that they are not as legible anymore. I have also used informal tools such as sticks from the ground dipped in ink. In doing so, I have developed new and exciting ways to broaden my horizons and step away from the picture plane so to speak.
