Part 2 (Intimacy) – Assignment two (Self-assessment)

  Demonstration of technical and visual skills I think I demonstrated good technical and visual skills. I’ve continued to experiment with different materials and techniques and mixing them up. In terms of observational skills, I sometimes struggle with perspective and angles but feel I have improved. This was the largest drawing using watercolor I’ve ever done and it made me realize that I don’t fully understand the material yet. For example, I had some issues creating strong shadows and it took me a long time to achieve what I was observing. Quality of outcome I dedicated a lot of time … Continue reading Part 2 (Intimacy) – Assignment two (Self-assessment)

Part 2, Project 3 (At home) – Research point

Unusual or multiple viewpoints / contemporary artists In this research point, I will be considering ways in which I could explore unusual viewpoints when drawing. I’ll also be researching some interior drawings by contemporary artists and analyzing their content, medium, format and context. Viewpoints: Study for Mrs Madeleine Jocelyne with her Son (1987), Anthony Green bird’s-eye view, elevated viewpoint multiple viewpoints at the same time, different perspectives drawing does not fill format or even touch edges resembles crumpled paper, origami, folds, geometric Male Model with Kimono, Female Model with Mirror (1985), Philip Pearlstein diagonals depth added by mirror figures going outside of … Continue reading Part 2, Project 3 (At home) – Research point

Part 2, Project 2 (Still Life) – Reflection

Review of my previous two exercises Exercise 1 Successful aspects texture, visible brushstrokes differentiation of groups using color, contrast dynamic composition, diagonal angles Struggles achieving the right lines choosing right material for a desired result deciding whether to fix mistakes or embrace them as part of the process deciding whether to finish a “failed” drawing or start over I think I managed to achieve some sense of depth by the use of angles, perspective, and the placement of objects in front and behind other objects. It was hard not being able to use tone, and thus not being able to … Continue reading Part 2, Project 2 (Still Life) – Reflection

Assignment one – Self-assessment

• Demonstration of technical and visual skills I feel like I have demonstrated a good knowledge of technical and visual skills. This isn’t my first drawing course, which means that I’ve already practiced on my drawing skills and that I’ve already experimented with many materials. With this assignment, I think I’ve been able to look at things with a new perspective, meaning that I’ve embraced new techniques (such as cross-hatching) and started to come out of my comfort zone. I think my observational skills are good and I feel confident that I made a believable representation of what I was … Continue reading Assignment one – Self-assessment
