Perspective Drawings City Of Westminster College
These sketches represent a visual journey around my college. Observing different aspects of the interior and exterior of the building. Interpreting my drawings using a mixture of pen and watercolour, allowed me to develop my ability to work faster yet still keep a high level of artistic skill.
Observational Paddington Basin
Working with pen has quickened my ability to draw as well as develop my ability to feel comfortable with my drawing processes. Without an eraser, I am less likely to want to correct my mistakes yet I work with them turning them into something useful. Whether it be a scribble manipulated into a shaded area.
Advertising Promoting London
For a college project, we promoted London. Choosing to promote the city as a place to live, allowed me to explore my skills of graphic design and photography.
Inspired by the technique of photo collaging/montaging, I depicted iconic buildings numerous times from different angles.
Using my skill of the software Photoshop, I created a digital sunset painting. Which I developed into a collage.
Infographics Climate Change
Everyday we are process information, whether or not it stays within our minds in my opinion, is up to the visual presentation.
This project required me to look at an alternate way to produce information that is easier to read, understand and be aesthetically pleasing, hence the name Infographics.
Based on climate change, I looked into the topics of species extinction and food production. Using my creative skill, I used my knowledge of digital softwares to create computerised artwork.
Gallery Visit Lucian Freud
A visit to the Tate Britain enable me to view Freud's work myself. Collecting images and information on style and life, I created a quick sketch of his 'Girl With A Kitten' in my sketchbook. I later on developed this sketch, turning it into a piece combining pen and watercolour.
SketchUp Architectural Designs
In a project on Sustainable Architecture, I was able to research into techniques to creating a sustainable building. This included gaining knowledge on the use of photovoltaic glass and solar panel. Inspired by the female form, I collected various information to form my final ideas. Working with SketchUp, was a rewarding aspect of my project, as it injected life into my preconceived vision.
Researching the idea of multipurpose buildings, My idea behind my building was to make it a learning resources centre, art gallery and restaurant.
A life drawing lesson inspired my design concept for my building. Sketching the female form, allowed me to visually explore the curvaceous structure of a woman.
Antti Lovag Palais Bulles
The Bubble Palace designed for fashion designer Pierre Cardin, is one of my favourite buildings. The structure is innovative and unforgettable. The structure and concept behind the design is what sparked my development of my own design inspired by the human form. Similarly, Lovag interprets the human form throughout the use of the 'bubbles'. Using the use of a circle to view the way of life.
Gallery Visit Design Museum
On an independent visit to the Design Museum, I focused on the structure of the building as well as Clementine Blackmore's 'A Tent in the Park'. Both structures convey a panelled roof appearance. Intrigued by her work, I was inspired to create my own version of her design on a tree slice using various materials including wood.
Architectural Maquette Shelter in Park
Using green material and gravel to create the setting of a park, I placed my shelter in the centre, which similar to Clementine Blackmore's 'A Tent in the Park', included a diagonal triangle structure. However, to create the roof of the shelter I used the material 'scrim'. My reasoning for placing my design on a tree slice was to follow the essence of nature as it is in a park.
This style of work enabled me to experiment with a variety of mediums and techniques that i have developed using stitch embroidery. My exploration consists of the use of paint on fabric, marbling and the use of recycled materials. Exploring this style of work, has allowed me to use my creatively ability in different forms.
