Avatar. I chose this image because it’s of one of my favourite films and because of that, it was also a terrifying prospect as the self imposed pressure to get it right was so great. The image is here because, with the need to do justice to the original, I am so pleased with the … Continue reading Assessment images UPM HE4

Remember this from the previous post? The ballet fail that I exorcised with a large dollop of white primer? Well, I’m taking another run at light, this one based on a photo reference because it’s clear that imagining how bodies work is not going well, despite having seen many in my lifetime.

This time there is no reference photo or painting although I did use one drawing by Degas for the angle of the head. First few layers. I started with … Continue reading More light

This time, I’ve taken a photograph I found that purports to be backstage at the Bolshoi although for now I can’t confirm that or find any details of the photographer. It’s absolutely stunning though, and my plan is to … Continue reading Light, again
Assignment 5, on the theme of environment, comprises five pairs of paintings following the demolition and rebuilding of my conservatory/studio over four months in 2020/21. The pairs further comprises a primary painting and a folded print of that piece as individual layers or blocks of paint were applied; and each pair reflects a different stage … Continue reading Assignment 5: final images and animations
This assignment was, for me, the best part of the module. Expansive and liberating, it contrasted sharply with the more insular and prescriptive exercises that preceded it but which, nevertheless, I was able to employ in this series of paintings. The environmental theme was perfect for my situation, trapped as I have been in a … Continue reading Objective Evaluation
