Response to these 3 paintings before I said anything about the work: Explain why didn’t those experiments go very well. Responses after I finished the presentation: The paintings are good at giving the viewer introspection because your painting feels like your lost in them. But I think that’s a good thing, I like it. Have […]Read more "Group Crit notes (based on recording)"
Exciting to imagine the sculpture on the painting. Three stage of translating the sculpture onto the projector. I was about to begin drawing the sculpture free hand on the acetate but then I realised why am I not just printing the image and tracing it? I did this and it worked like a dream! It […]Read more "Big painting adding the structure"
Before doing any sketches I wanted to see what angle and size would work on the painting. These rough digital sketches are really helpful. First edit. Sculpture legs aren’t long enough because height of trees is captured although space and depth is. This second one works because the legs are longer so a great height […]Read more "Digital sculpture on painting"
This is the first big painting of this term, but my process and scale etc is all built on what I was doing the term before. There are however a few changes I made to the painting process for this piece which has changed because of feedback I have had on previous paintings, and the […]Read more "Big canvas painting process"
I was writing in my sketchbook that I wanted this final sculpture of the term to be geometric. But when I sketched ideas out in my sketchbook I realised that fan faults are the most iconic Cathedral architectural feature, so this is a shape I need to explore! This shape is both simple and intricate […]Read more "Second Paper Mache Sculpture Process"
Why haven’t I done this before!? I was home one evening talking about my work and I was reminded of using a projector to project shapes onto the canvas to get proportions right etc. SO I found an overhead projector – I chose this instead of a digital one because I can still hand draw […]Read more "Using a projector in the painting process"
First of all I did a series of sketches in my sketchbook, this was the most successful and so I wanted a sketch like this but more refined on the painting. Turns out it is a lot harder to paint this shape onto the painting than I expected!! Problems with the process of this experiment: […]Read more "Second experiment drawing sculpture into a painting"
I thought it would be useful to see how the sculpture will look in the painting, giving me an idea of how a drawing would look in real life. The right hand angle looks way better, the angle on the right makes the shape look flat and not dimensional. I discovered this in my sketchbook […]Read more "Photoshopping structures into a painting"
This went terribly!!! I did no practice, I just started on the paper – turns out that was not a good idea! I first mapped out only the lines, following the pattern I made when drawing the sculpture straight on. But the shape didn’t make any sense. So i blocked in the white to see […]Read more "Sculpture drawing at an angle"
Location I painted outside just now to prepare the page for the sculpture test drawing I’m going to put on top. This was the first painting in this style I have done in what seems like a while! This is not really true, but compared to last term I have been doing less painting outside. […]Read more "Paint thickness and next drawing sculpture experiment"
