Right well... I've decided to do a Masters! It was a rather short notice decision although I did get offered a place at Uclan when I graduated, but decided to work instead seem as I was being offered freelance work. I'm really gladI waited a year first because my work has developed in many ways as well as me learning to work quicker and more efficiently.
It feels a bit amazing thinking I'm a student again (a post graduate one)! Even though it's going to be hard - I'm studying part time and working as much as I possibly can. I decided not to keep my website, for now I'm going to make this blog into my area of the web since that's what all the cool kids are doing anyway. Also you can be my friend if you like on my facebook.
In other news I'm also now a member of Farsley Art Club! A lovely little discovery, a group of really talented people and right near where I live. I can do life drawing there as well as other classes etc so I will hopefully be posting up things I've done there when I do something I don't mind showing! :)
Here's a drawing from life drawing. I used to go life drawing a lot but hadn't done it for about two years... so I was rusty. Most of the two hours I didn't really draw anything I liked, but this was a tiny drawing (this one is four inches tall) right towards the end of the session. It doesn't really look that much like the model at all, he has been stylised a bit. When I let my imagination come into my drawing then I produce something I like more. Not sure if that's the norm in a life drawing class but it's the best way for me to get the most out of it. My scanner is not speaking to me at the moment so this is just a photo from my phone, not the best quality.
