Here we have more excellent drawings from students who have applied their knowledge of texture to another subject - nature. Firstly, as we did with the previous drawings the students have focused in on single objects from nature. These drawings can quite easily be done in sketchbooks out in the field or brought back into the studio environment.
This research is a way of storing information for future use, and indeed if you look in the sketch books of artists such as Leonardo da Vinci you will see his studies from nature, and they are an inspiration. This type of work is a visual enquiry and essential spadework needs to be done by students who wish to acquire the visual knowledge that is needed to produce more established works.
