I have spent more time this week adding to my sketchbook.
To be continued, this sketch is of the gears on the side of a Steam Ploughing engine. Still a lot of work to go but I feel it is a good start, I love old machinery particularly the steam driven variety!
This is a study of a sculpture currently on show at the Pride of the Valley sculpture park in Churt, Farnham, Surrey. I really liked the exaggerated pregnant form. I was a bit worried about attempting to draw it as I feel that realistic sketching is something I find the hardest to do but I was surprised an delighted with the result. It worked out a lot better than I thought!
The idea for this starter sketch came to me the other morning when I was feeling particularly overwhelmed with all the roles I have to juggle as a mother. I want to develop this idea further in the future maybe as a piece or maybe part of a body of work.
This week I also revisited Project 1 – Stage 3 exercise 1 as I was not completely happy with what I had achieved. I added a few more experimental marks to each page and am now a lot more satisfied with it.
