week 17: sketchbook

i spwnd time this week researching ways that i can create texture and the appearance of decay and ware in my paintings and experimented with these in my sketchbook. i used a technique which involved putting a layer of pva between layers of paint, putting a 2nd layer of acrylic on top of wet pva causes it to appear cracked.

i also did a small painting in my skwtchbook of an image which caught my eye online of a phone box which has been taken over by plants, and am interested in taking this mage further.
