Mind-Map Drawing

After my first study of Madrid that involves sketchbook pages, ┬ámemory and text, I wanted to focus more on details and intricacy. I started this study with my sketchbooks open around me, with collected receipts, tickets and sketches of art from the galleries I visited. I wanted the time it takes to create to be an important factor in my current art because as I draw new ideas and memories surface, letting my mind wander back to my experiences in Madrid. Here there is a range of focuses – detailed drawings, recreated blind sketches, representations of art and written text. I will be adding to this each day until I feel it is completed.

Developing Ideas

To create art following on from my trip to Madrid I have studied my sketchbooks and taken in conversations I’ve recorded and conjured up memories to involved in my work Using a collage of these in a mind-map of ideas I have recreated aspects of my experiences; without a main focus in the work I have had to consider composition and colour, whilst also being free with my recordings and letting my subconscious and memory lead.
