A Second Trip to Ng Teck Fong Hospital
After the one week was gone, I still haven’t had any ideas came out so I decided to go the hospital for second time with Siqi. We chose to go there between 1800 to 1900 to do another observation. It is because we not only can see the lights went through the window at day and also we can observe how the lights change at night.
I found a wheelchair bay at the end of the travellator. This is a discovery that I did’t realise last time.
The whole environment looked lifeless while the sky was getting dark. This happened around 6:45pm.
The lighting was so nice when the lights were all on!
After I decided to choose the OCEAN to be my theme for this project, I applied the cool colour scheme to be the main colour. Besides, the wave is in this colour scheme originally and it will make you feel more soothing.
Process (First Stage)
Due to my very slow progress before, I forced myself to catch up the progress of our classmates after the consultation with Michael. I think I should do that because if I didn’t get this it to complete this time, I can’t imagine when I will postpone this project until.
Actually, for my primary idea was something like kids drawing and kids collage because it brings out the freestyle of an innocent child. After that, I came out with the idea of mosaic art which is inspired by the art of the children’s collage. Then, I ask for suggestion from my friend, she told me that the mosaic makes her feel uncomfortable because there is too much things going on in one image. So, I changed my idea from the mosaic art of ocean animals to the curly waves.

Here are the development of my first sketches:
Michael mentioned that the wave looks rough and it may be looks too dangerous like tsunami. He suggested me that I can still keep the layers of blues but maybe need to reduce the number of rolling looking waves. Besides, white lines can be used instead of black lines.
Process (Second stage)
After that, I started all of this with my strength. The waves were painted in blue and green watercolour. I felt enjoyable this time because I didn’t define the shape of waves and how it should look like. This media was quite potential to develop as the watercolour will have different tones and shapes depended on how you paint it.
The random waves I painted it didn’t give me a comfortable feeling and I decided to cut it with different shapes.
I scanned it and see how it can be fun in photoshop!
By the repetition of the blue shape to make it looks like waves. I gave up this because it looks too organised and it doesn’t attract me.
Pushing the same idea by drawing shapes in Photoshop.
Process (Third Stage)
Lastly, my friend sent me a picture that made her felt comfortable the most. It had inspired me why not to use horizontal lines to represent the waves. So I did the first tried out as below. For more process please refer to the next post 🙂
