For our afternoon session we meet back in our meeting place for phase two which was to take turns in groups to go to the Jerwood Museum I did some sketches and had a conversations with Lisa on different works. We then went back to the Tate and had to chose 5 different works sketch them and write a critical response to them.
For our second lesson we went to the Tate Modern Museum. My day started off a bit hectic as we missed the turning for the Tate so had to drive round the one way system. I got dropped off at the Tate so I met in the meeting place we did our two morning activities which was to draw negative spaces in objects and to document a journey in some way.
This is a photo of " Lee Ufan- from line 1978 oil paint and glue on canvus" I loved this painting because it literally pulled me in due to the vivid bright blue used at the top of the design. It's how the blue decreases to White it got me thinking how the artist done that then when I read the detail of the painting next to it it told me they had used a mixture of paint and glue. It works excellent together.
This is "Pablo Picasso- bust of a woman" I like this design as it's abstract I think this is why I picked it because it is a portrait that's humorous and doesn't has to be precise and perfect. The colours complement each other and the green colour of the bust stands out the most.
For our first lesson it started off with an introductory lecture on drawing and we were able to see different artists works and how drawing is not limited to pencil and paper! We then went through the course overview and Calendar. In our first activity we sketched our faces however, our eyes where closed using one hand feeling our faces and the other sketching while Jim described faces. This worked very well and was a fun activity.
This is "Leon Golub- Vietnam 2 1973 acrylic on linen." I didn't like this work because it was completely terrible and terrifying that it shows a young child in the middle of a war zone. On further viewing it does recognise the impact and terror young children go through on a daily basis. The impact of using greens, blacks, whites and browns show the link between the characters and the idea of the piece.
This is my example of "Lee Ufan" work I think the blue paint has worked out well however, I need to work out how to get the glue shown I need to try different paper/card. In this take it didn't show up because of the white sketch paper used.
This is my sketch of "Leon Golub" work I think my sketch didn't turn out as well as I wanted however, next time I'm going to try and using oil pastels to really get the army/war feel to it and make it more realistic.
This is my take on "Pablo Picasso- bust of a woman" I think my design come out very well and the use of the oil pastels as my media adds to the bright colours shown his piece.
This is my sketch on "Aideen Cusack Leggett -Dance Wallpaper pencil on paper 2013" I really loved this sketch as it gives off a delicate feeling due to the HB pencil used and it reminds me of ballet dancers which links with the name of the design.
This is my sketch of my attempt at "Andy Black-Field in on paper 2012" I believe it has worked out well with the different details within the sketch. However, next time I am going to try different medias maybe charcoal as I can get a better take on shading round and in certain parts of the design.
This is my journey page I have documented it in drawings it has elements of parts of different works I have seen throughout the museum. I believe it has worked out well and I really enjoyed it however, I am going to try a different approach next time try to think outside of the box more.
This is one of my negative space sketches I started of confused however, I believe these worked out well.
I was really worried that drawings/ sketches had to be perfect and precise however, many of these activities showed me otherwise.
This is the activity of drawing three different objects in different media sand sizes. These drawings did not work out well they turned out terrible! I am defiantly going to practice my drawing skills to improve.
