Drawing: Saturation project complete – no more painting in Drawing class


My last Drawing project is complete. I can’t say that I love the work, but it meets the project brief.

This is the first work – I had started another piece which I was unhappy with and scrapped. This was completed in about an hour in class – and it looks it. I’m not happy with this one except for the colours. It was really interesting to mix the tints.

This is the second work. Whilst I do not really like the style, I am very happy with the way this piece turned out. There is about 10 hours work in this, and it shows when compared to the first piece. (It was hard to get a good photo of this even in natural light as it is glazed and in daylight there is a certain amount of glare from the work.)

For assessment I have to hand in 6 colour works – the first of these will not be handed in as I do not consider it one of my good works.

  1. I think the first painting is interesting. Shows potential of more work, I’d like to see. 🙂 I like the second painting a lot I like the lettering in it.

  2. The process for the two was so different. The first one was almost thrown together in about an hour and a half, whilst the second one was thought out and then executed over a much longer time. Two very different processes, two very different outcomes. I do like the texture in the first painting – used a palette knife to apply the colour rather than a brush so there was less control of the outcome in some ways I think.
    I can’t wait for the course to finish so I can begin to explore some more.
