I handed in Module 3 of my course last week.
It was an enjoyable module, I had to collect inspirational collections of images.
I then used one of these to paint a range of papers using colours drawn from an image of a bird, and further worked into the papers with oil pastels and PVA glue.
The biggest challenge for me was the drawing part of the module, where I had to sketch various plants. Having not done any drawing for about 13 years, I was rather scared of that part of the module. Hannah gave me some good suggestions, the most helpful of which was to set a timer and just sketch for 5 minutes, getting down whatever you can in that time. I did these 3 sketches of plants int he conservatory on holiday:
I need to get into a habit of drawing more things, so that I can keep on working at the fear of doing it, and hopefully get better!
The next module looks fun, lots of work with collage and stencilling.
