Experiment in Drawing








I tried experimenting with Kozo paper.  I wanted to flattened "wrinkled" paper so that I would be able to draw on the textured surface.  These are some of my experiments.  I like the drawings much better unraveled.   On the first one I flattened the surface with my bookpress overnight.  The next day I ironed it flatter. I then drew with Stabilio Aquarelle.  I think the results look much better than the original.  The second drawing I did with pastel and conte.  I also spritzed the folded paper before I ironed the wrinkle to as flat a surface as possible then i left it overnight under a litho stone.
