Assignment 5 feedback session

Overall Comments

You have been a thoughtful student and have demonstrated to me that you have the ability undertake a degree level piece of academic research.  Your drawing skills have developed but I think embarking on the degree will really speed that up and help you to commit more time to drawing.

Drapery styles

As part of a carving project I have been considering drapery, as well as for the drawing course. As well as the construction of drapery I’ve been examining the different styles and variation across time. The variation is significant, with the different styles seeming to go in long cycles across time. Continue reading “Drapery styles”
