Subject development

I am using Peter Blake’s miniatures as my starting point for subject and have also looked at his Grand Tour collages, which were both on display at the Harley Gallery, I chose Blake’s’ curation because i was interested in experimenting with size and scale in my work. However, the 100 Pembrokeshire drawings reminded me of postcards, and to me worked in the same way as a brief notation and record of a place. I am interested in the limiting aspect of the small scale of postcards and of the 100 drawings, which meant that mark making had to be simplified as there was little room for detail.
