I chose to consider the sketches on sunflower, 2 geometric islamic shapes I had been printing with, and the Qalat Bahrain arch design, I ended up deciding against the sunflower as I do not feel that I can do anything original yet with this. I feel it is a well-developed image and I would be too tempted to look at other people’s ideas….. With the islamic shapes, I decided that to look ways of using the shapes separate from a block design in my stage 3 experiments, and also the archways were still pulling..
