It looked like it might snow here today. But it didn't snow.

maybe quote marks would help to get the point across that it's how someone else feels.

Well it's finished. Not sure if i like it or not though? I like the overall effect, but i'm not sure if it should be more perfect... not sure if i completely like it or not. There's definitely something about it i do like.

Wednesday, 2 December 2009

Have been so busy at uni. Here is a quick page from my sketchbook. I'm doing a project on phobia.

Been busy busy busy and don't know what to say about it all. Live music. Seeing my boyfriend. Gym. Working on uni work and general life.

Beach and work work work

I've been working too much lately. Not leaving me much time to do things, i went to the beach with my friend Kayleigh a couple of weeks ago but since then I've just been working full time and tidying and reading at the weekends. Soon i will start to do things again. I have to go visit some galleries soon at least because I'm meant to before i start uni.
Got excellent results from college, 3 distinctions on my national diploma which is equivalent to three A's at A level.

:) I will write again when i have something interesting to write about.

Final Piece, Human Fragility

Haven't been blooging much lately, or at all really, been so busy with the end of college and working when i can, that all i want to do is sleep when i get home. But now college is over! And here is a picture from my Final piece of my Final Major Project, don't know what marks i got for this yet but i really enjoyed it. I chose Human fragility as my theme and made porcelain dolls to represent it.

I will write more when i can :)

I love how the colours came out in this picture.

Here is a recent collage i did for my FMP. It's a collage about fragile materials.
I really enjoyed this. I wish all work was like this.


Well life has been going along okay. My public art project is finally over, i got 2 merits and a distinction which was okay. At least it's over now :) I've now moved on to my Final Major project which i should get all distinctions for if i work on it well as we've been learning to do project based work like this for two years now. I'm a little worried that i'm already heading in the wrong direction with it though as its meant to be about the fragility of the human body and instead i'm obsessed with pressing flowers and taking polaroids of the sky which isn't really helping. Spring is going to my head.

Decided on an art degree. Doing Fine Art at Winchester school of art. Sadly the fun bit is over now and i have to sort out finances and accommodation. Should be worth it when i get there though.

more to come xxx

The last month or so...

Chickens are great for taking photos of, i thought they might be scared, but they just run right up to you. I'm not that fond of animals, but chickens i like, they lay eggs, they walk around and peck and don't demand attention. These chickens belong to some friends of mine. I had a birthday party over there and in the morning i got to see the chickens. Also, their lawn was a lovely background for the chickens. I want to paint a picture of one but i'm still busy painting landscapes at the moment.

The uni application stuff is going well, i will talk about it properly when i have made a decision etc though. Nothing is set in stone right now.

In a couple of weeks the Public Art project is over and we start our Final Major Projects. I am looking forward to this so much. Just exploring something new and i have so many ideas.

A week and a bit ago i got back from Amsterdam, it was a great trip but i have yet to develop pictures :)

Not much else to report. I will be very busy finishing my current project for the next couple of weeks. Then i am planning a road trip to the beach with some friends. Fun times will be had. :p

Busy busy

So lately i've been so busy with college work and applying to uni and work and sorting out my Dad's house for sale that i've had NO free time. But i have started to learn to paint as part of my project. I find this exciting because in the past i've just gone by trial and error and now i am learning new techniques and colour theory. I've even uploaded a pic of an unfinished piece to show you.

New years eve was fabulous. Most fun i've had in ages. The champagne helped, and the company of course. I met some great people and saw some that i hadn't seen in ages. Scince then though i've been all busy again! It's my Birthday party this weekend (i was 21 on the 6th), so at least i can socialise. :)
