The end is in sight. This is the sixth and final set of artworks for assessment to the London Art College's correspondence course D6 Illustrating Children's Books.
Of the set, the first part is a smaller project, which was an exercise in faces and shapes.
The brief went something like this:
Draw a series of rough geometic shapes: a circle, an oval, an up pointing triangle, a down pointing triangle, a square, a rectangle and a long U shape. Create faces from these shapes. Use exaggerated expressions. Experiment with colour, materials and types of line.
To get the experimentation right, I wrote out a list of methods.
Nib ink with minimum detail
Pen ink with more detail
Nib ink with watercolour
Pen ink with watercolour
Ink with coloured pencil
Watercolour first, ink last
Watercolour and pencil, with no ink
Then the fun started pairing up shape with method.
Here's the first page
And the second page
Yes, this exercise was fun indeed. One more exercise to go....
