my self evaluation on learned experiences and feedback received

Assignment 5: Discerning decisions on my assignment 5

Based on my tutor’s feedback on my assignment work I understand that I had to be stronger to ‘demonstrate a considered reasoning of the visual path that leads towards a specific outcome’  and not to get stuck eventually in ideas. Therefore I did review my assignment works and pre works with scrutiny and to ensure that I can build on the more…

Assignment 5: Self evaluation

How did I do against the assessment criteria? Demonstration of technical and visual skills: I worked mainly in dry media and new techiques of collage and dé-collage. I became during my project more aware of visual perception and bodily experience of drawing. Through deeper investigation of my mark making I studies various aspect of ambiguous and simplified marks. With translucent…

Part 4 – Assignment 4 – Self evaluation

How did I do against the assessment criteria? Demonstration of technical and visual skills: Based on received tutor’s feedback I previous assignment I revisited my usage of media and my drawing approach. I limited myself to rather dry media (charcoal, Conté crayon, graphite) and used wet media (ink, paint, watercolor) rather to create distinct atmosphere or to prepare drawing surfaces. To…

After assignment 3 – Additional work in series

I am going to do a series of drawings of the sections of the subject of the bridge and architectural features from Ex 2 from project 5 (townscape study in line) as my tutor suggested using pencil, grey marker pens and possibly white ink or gouache. Here I will explore a more abstract approach, the structure, its form and space. To answer the question: Can…

Part Three – Assignment 3 – Self evaluation

How did I do against the assessment criteria? Demonstration of technical and visual skills: Although I had an initial thought about my preferred medium (gouache and charcoal) I did further testing and found ink a better medium for my composition and the atmosphere of the location. I was able to get quite confident with my ink and brush technique. I watched…

Part two – Assignment 2: Self Evaluation

How did I do against the assessment criteria? Demonstration of technical and Visual Skills I applied my learnings from the previous exercises for this assignment. Especially the usage of line and tone, color washes, ‘negative’ drawing with frisket pen, collage technique with transfer paper etc. Going through several steps of observation from life animals and their environment, I used my sketches…

Part One – Assignment 1 – A personal still life

With this my first assignment I will demonstrate what I’ve learned and how I can apply my skills in drawing a still life with objects that have some meaning to me. It was requested to set up objects with interesting shapes and angles and to consider the negative space. Application of light and dark, various tones will allow the creation…

Project 2: Self evaluation light and tone

The last two exercises I explored different ways of rendering a three-dimensional perception of form. I learned how important it is to understand correctly the direction of direct and reflected light. Referring to Leonardo da Vinci’s five-value rule helped me to understand the concept deeper. My initial sketches supported my learnings. What I found out is the importance of good observation…

Introduction – Research Trail

As mentioned in the coursework it was encouraged to do the Introduction to HE course. Here I expected to learn more about important concepts and practical techniques. My Starting point: I chose the Documentary film alphabet, from the Austrian director Erwin Wagenhofen. I did not chose a well-established art practitioner at this time. First, I already wanted to see this documentary, and secondly…
