During September 2016 to the end of October 2016, I was given the opportunity to participate in some life drawing classes. I had never done any life drawing before this and honestly had no idea how it would plan out. On this post is all my life drawings I have done over these 6/7 weeks. For a more zoomed in portfolio, check my behance account (link on about me page).

A4 Winsor & Newton (Not Ring bound) sketchbook | Product Review

A4 Winsor & newton hard back sketchbook | Fab or Fail |

After only using this sketchbook for 2 weeks I have a very strong opinion on whether I love it or hate it. I can confirm for my personal use that this sketchbook is totally a …..

FAIL!!!!

I have NEVER in my art career even with cheap, scrap sketchbooks, had one where the pages literally fall out by turning the page to have a flat surface to work on. So far every page has done this and I have had to stick them back in using masking tape which ruins the look and feel of a ‘supposingly’ good sketchbook!!

As you can see down below the glue has separated to create holes which probably why the pages has fallen out. Considering the price of £11.99, I feel like this sketchbook is defiantly not worth it. I brought this sketchbook because I wanted a more ‘branded’ good quality sketchbook so I paid more for it as its one of the most known art brands in the UK, however this sketchbook has proven to be a disgrace and I hope this is just a faulty one not the whole batch :). Whilst I purchased this sketchbook, I also purchased the same brand in A3 that is ring bound. I’m not a fan of ring bound but I will see how that goes and I pray its better than this one.

I would rate this a 2/10. The paper is quite good quality however its impossible to work without sticking the pages in securely as they fall a move out.

Ceramics Lesson- Basics and Sprig Moulds

My first lesson of the current course UAL Level 3 foundation Diploma in Art and Design was a ceramics lesson learning the basics including wedging, kneading, rolling out etc.

I also learnt about relief imprints, an relief decorations. Creating marks using wooden tools to create designs free hand or using stamps such as above ‘PORTUGAL’ and creating texture to the clay.

I also experimented with sprigs | a mould to create a 3d relief decoration.| I used newspaper to create texture to my clay for the ‘Dementia brief’ to represent decaying skin. I used a face sprig to give a typical base of a face to work on. I wouldn’t say my ceramics is the best of my work but this blog is to share my journey :).

In the end I didn’t go ahead with the ceramics as apart of my dementia project (will be clear in the next weeks when I upload posts). however I gave it my best shot. that’s my piece of advice to you all- just try your best regardless
