Experiments and Improvement
A few weeks ago I got my grades back for this semester's painting and illustration modules. I was happy with my grade for illustration but less so for painting, especially since that's what I'm planning on taking next year. Whether or not I continue with imaginary landscapes next semester it is important for me to build my knowledge of real landscapes by working from life and reference images.
It's also important that I try new techniques or I'll end up getting stuck in a routine. I've been really enjoying finger painting recently, you can get some really interesting layers and soft blending. It's also just fun to smear paint around with your hands!
I will be continuing to practice and experiment for the rest of the summer and will hopefully manage to get a better grade next semester!
