Exercise: Finding a View

After initial research see Selection of Personal Project for Final Assignment, I was sure where I wanted to focus my view, although, not how to tackle it.  Today I have spent around an hour at the site, sketching, looking and taking some generic photographs to better understand the area.  Below are the pages from my sketchbook with the thumbnail sketches and notes made at the scene and on reflection back at home.

Photos were taken as reference and reminders of the area – also to retain some colour comparisons.

The photographs may, or may not be appealing, however, I am  hoping to express my inspiration in using this scene in an interesting, unusual and textural way.  We will see how my experiments progress through the coming exercises and preliminary work.
