March 17th – weather good and decided to have another go at Assignment 3 ‘An Outdoor Scene’ as feedback had suggested this.
I used watercolour pencils both dry and wet and a limited palette as I thought there was too much colour in my original piece. I left out the bus shelter which I had rendered inaccurately in my original piece. The tree looks too bright in the photo, it is actually a more subdued red in my drawing.
Assignment 3 revised: ‘An Outdoor Scene’.
Original piece for Assignment 3 with a bus shelter.
Tutor report – I was disappointed that I’d mistakenly marked my blog private so my tutor was not able to comment. This was entirely my fault but I would have benefited from feedback.
Feedback to think about:
The perspective in my final assignment was wrong so a bus shelter was initially interpreted as a table top. I will work on this again and leave out the bus shelter in both pictures.
Pointers for next block is to be more careful with my drawing of figures- ‘slow down and look more carefully’. Edward Ardizzone and Honore Daumier are two artists suggested to look at – I love both these artists – saw the Daumier exhibition at the RA a few years ago.
Also a suggestion to visit the Nickolai Astrup exhibition at Dulwich – I have already planned to go as the paintings look interesting.I lived for a time in this area and used to regularly visit Dulwich gallery.
