I’ve been working on the idea in several ways, as can be seen from my previous post. I seem to have settled on an arrangement of items on a chopping board, though I’m split between basic vegetables or whether to include the spices. As a first run at a good image I started with Charcoal. Continue reading “Project 3.2: Developing ideas”
I been trying to consider how best to approach this one. I tried to think through approaches and ideas. The concept of “larger than life” came through from the brief and started me thinking… The most obvious idea is something like an arrangement of vegetables, but other ideas can work… Continue reading “Project 3.2: Playing with ideas”
On consideration I’ve decided that it is appropriate to reflect on my tutor’s feedback again. This is more for my own thinking than as a response. After my Assignment 2 feedback I realised that I hadn’t understood and/or followed some of his advice. Considering each point explicitly at this point seems worthwhile as a completeness check, and to build a “further work” list. Continue reading “Reflection on Tutor feedback”
Continuing the cupboard top left side I started to add boxes and try to slant them, as planned in my sketchbook. I just couldn’t get them to look how I wanted them to be, so I tried adding flat boxes instead: Continue reading “Project 3.1: Through to Completion”
I’ve been looking back at my practice sketches from December with a critical eye and my current study of perspective in mind. Issues start to build fairly quickly, although in many ways it is still an improvement on previous work. Possibly the biggest single issue is that the cupboard sketch was supposed to be face on, so the top and bottom of the cupboard facing should be parallel. They aren’t, and in fact they slightly diverge. Continue reading “Project 3.1:Starting Again”
I’m trying to decide how to work out which cupboard is best, what viewpoint and how much to open the door. We have three cupboards in the house that meet the brief, with one having double doors. One has cans and such in, another is tea boxes and drinks and the last spices and jars.
I like the cupboard with the spice jars. This is the one I chose for my earlier practice, but the cupboard with the tea packets would work as well.
There is also the question of whether to ‘tidy’ the cupboard. I’m thinking not. In fact I may even add some extra stuff. My life is full to over flowing, and I want the drawing to reflect that. If that is the driver then the double door cupboard, with its stacked up contents would be best.
On amount of the door to show, I think it looks best with just a bit of the outside of the door showing. Decisions, decisions…
Starting the project again, following a new approach. First I’m thinking through the sorts of questions I need to think through. Basic approach and how to make the pieces seem grounded is the first challenge. Continue reading “Project 3.1: Restart”
