*using other knowledge
Primary research – your own critique or opinion (on painting, illustration…); practical experimentation, testing of materials and art & design making processes.
Secondary research – using other sources (magazines, books…) to support your own research.
Primary research example and how I wrote about it:
This banner stands for the worker community of the South Yorkshire. I believe it could be used during the protests. It represents three strikes that took place between 1984 and 1985.
+ talking about composition and colour pallet
+ finding out where ”still the enemy within” comes from
+ talking on what artists work it reminds off
+ talking about image : what people are wearing, objects…
+ adding secondary research to support my ideas.

* historical/where these colours come from?
experimental/process, materials, techniques/testing
Research about illustration – influences, styles, history
Research into illustration – methods, experimentation
Research through illustration – development, my own practice.
