I started, as all ways, With a little brain storming which I like to record in the form of a mind map. A place I can reference and add to as I progress with this assignment. Added to this are some notes about ways to develop ideas and reminders of the set criteria. These are as follows.
View should include:
- Some natural objects. Trees, Shrubs, pot plants, garden plants or fields.
- Depth of field to demonstrate linear, angular and/ or arial perspective.
- Straight lined objects. Man made, fence, building, etc..
Plan of attack:
- Look at different artists handling of subject ‘view from a window’. Make note of how they resolve possible problems, such as depicting depth of field.
- Review what I have learnt in drawing out doors.
- Brain storm ideas – mind map.
Preliminary Sketches –
- Chose view , Look at options, decide view/views to develop.
- Experiment with composition, eliminate or move objects. Decide what to include from view and what to leave out .
- Plot space, Explore depicting depth of field.
Developmental Drawings –
- Broad brush sketches to decide on colour.
- Experiment with different media. Try mixed media.
- Make some different sized studies.
Final Drawing –
- A3 paper
- Refer to preliminary sketches
- Asses work against assessment criteria. Make a personal evaluation.
Don’t Forget –
- Send to tutor.
- Blue slip to OCA informing of completion.
This A4 study in brown drawing pencil and HB was made in the early morning before the sun came up at my parents house. Here the only view is the reflection of the kitchen. There are some nice views and window set ups in this house but I’m pretty sure I would be in the way as is not just a quick one of drawing but a project full of them For this reason I’m not going to follow up on this drawing or uses any views from this house in the interest of family peace!
I took some photos from Epping to South Wood ford along the central line. I though they might make for an interesting series of tonal drawings. They all came out quite colourless so would translate well to Blake and white. This sketch is on perviously coloured paper made with charcoal and white drawing pencils.
