On consideration of my feedback from my tutor I’m trying a new format for this blog. I’m going to be starting to write each project up in a single post. I will add to the post as I do the drawings for the project, which I’m hoping will make the intention of the drawing process clearer.
Ex 1: Approaching a single tree
Making a start
I started by experiments in my sketchbook. Continue reading “Project 1: Trees”
In the following extract I’ve retained the relevant feedback for my development and removed content which seems inappropriate to share. Missing content is denoted with “…”. My initial reflection on the feedback follows it.
In the blog you write about your research method. It would be good to use drawing as the principle research method. When you spend time with a subject and forget about what’s ‘right’ you make some good work. At the moment though, you tend to be hidebound by the discoveries / methods of others. Allow yourself to investigate the media and the subject THROUGH drawing and not through reading about other people’s way of making things. Continue reading “Part 2 Feedback and Reflection”
Somewhat reworked to reflect Part 2 tutor feedback changes. Little substantial change.
Part 2 has been, to say the least, quite a journey for me – even after adding a month to my intended submission deadline I still haven’t really finished it properly. I’ve only done one initial Monotone Drawing (Part 2, Project 3 Ex4), when I had intended to do a series of them and pick the best. I didn’t manage to get to the experimentation with mixed media (Part 2, Project 3 Ex3) at all – despite plans for a number of things I still wanted to try. In fact, that is a summary of my Part 2: A lot done, but so much more that I wanted to do. I fully intend to “back fill” the missing material, but we will see if the other parts are a packed as Part 2. If so, time might not allow… Continue reading “Part 2 Submission Notes”
Note: Reworked following Part 2 feedback, including merging together the parts of the thread.
I’ve had a few ideas for Assignment 2, but since my earlier lichen drawing it’s a subject I’ve wanted to revisit. This time, however, I’m planning to take a different approach. Continue reading “Assignment 2: Lichen revisited”
Reworked following Part 2 feedback. I’ve also added notes that I previously thought I’d included but now can’t find. Unfortunately the original wording is lost, so I’ve recreated it from memory.
Sketches around the house
Tutor feedback progress
When I receive tutor feedback I tend to make a minor action plan on what best to do about it. In this case, the report pretty much had the main action plan in the summary:
- Reflect on this feedback in your learning log.
- Follow up on the suggestions I have made.
- Make stronger connections between your work and that of others.
- Be patient and focus on the potential for the media to make marks. Don’t try and make ‘finished’ works.
- Make lots more preparatory work
