  1. 1. Place in Question assignment 2015 Evaluation
  2. 2. Using historical and contemporary research Unit 9 Contextual References a research into historical and contemporary work, showing understanding of the contexts which influenced the work . What have you learned about the influences on other’s work? B recording and presenting information explaining the use of visual language in others’ work. Where have you analysed examples? What did you learn? c use of contextual references in own work How have you used references? What impact did they have on your ideas? • A) I have researched into a number of artist from different time periods and art movement periods and studied their style. I have analysed and pinpointed similarities and themes in their work which make up their style of work and experimented with that. I have also added my opinion to say what I liked and disliked about it. My researches include 2 from pint rest, 1 from Tumblr and 4 artist which I found useful. These being Julia Potts Helen Musselwhite, Leonid Afremov and Micheal Murphy. • B) From my research I have done a detailed study of their work which I have planned and evaluated. This then helped me to use their style in practice after I had visually analysed them. • C) After analysing styles and techniques and then recreating one of their paintings I have then taken my location and recreated an image from it in te style of my chosen artist or style. This gives me an even deeper understanding and visual guild to see if it will work with my chosen brief. Illustrate (photo’s from sketchbook) and fully explain one example for each criteria. Explain how you have covered the criteria.
  3. 3. Location studies All Pathways- Fine Art, Design, Multimedia a. recording of experiences or information to develop intentions What approaches did you use to examine and record your location? Representing the space; details; light etc. How did you decide and which worked the best? Why? b use of materials, processes and technology or a combination of materials, processes and technology to develop ideas What did you learn through your initial enquiries? Experiments and techniques, use of an experimental process to generate new ideas, suitability of some rather than others? a) When given my location I have used a number of medias to recreate and experiment with. This includes; watercolour pen(ballpoint and fine liner) pencil, charcoal, soft pastel, acrylic and collage. I also used different material to work onto to see if that matches any medias and enhances the style. This includes; white paper, watercolour paper and sugar paper. The one I liked the most was a mixture of water colour and fine liner on normal sketch book paper. This is because the sugar paper and the normal white paper and card either absorbed the colour too much and so I couldn’t spread the colour or that it spread too much. Water colour and pen were used as they complimented each other with pen being detailed and harsh were as watercolour begin soft and pale. b) Also used sketch up. This gave me time to experiment with graphic media and also fine art. He sketch up model was done by measuring the green house (my structure) and creating an exact replica of it on the programme. I then changed the materials on the walls to make it more realistic. I then crated a short animation of my green house and shed which is n my Tumblr account. This helped me to see what the different angles do to the 2d visual. It helped me to create a graphics model of my location and then be able to see it in 2d so that I could effectively draw my structures in terms of perspectives. Illustrate (photo’s from sketchbook) and fully explain one example for each criteria. Explain how you have covered the criteria.
  4. 4. Making and developmental work - (Test piece, studies from 3D model) Unit 12 (Fine Art) a. recording of experiences or information to develop intentions What approaches did you use to examine and record your location? Representing the space; details; light etc. How did you decide and which worked the best? Why? b use of materials, processes and technology or a combination of materials, processes and technology to develop ideas What did you learn through your initial enquiries? Experiments and techniques, use of an experimental process to generate new ideas, suitability of some rather than others? a) To record my location I experimented with different media and techniques to computer different angle. This includes taking photos, making sketches, crating a sketch up model and creating a 3d blue foam model. I then researched into different perspectives such as atmospherics and linear and found that atmospheric worked best visually with my painting as it fit with the media I wanted to use. Aka the watercolour as it is light and easy to blend out. I then did perspective experiments using my model to confirm this. b) I decided to use watercolour and fine liner as it fit what thought the location looked like. The location is a mixture of messy organic matter and orderly manmade structure so to show this the watercolour made the soft light texture of the natural as it is all messy and no strong lines present. And then the pen made the structures and designs on the wall of the structures more prominent and bold to match this. This therefor was right to use watercolour and pen. Acrylic was too harshly colour to fit with my colour scheme without it being too dark and pencil alone would not be a correct representation of all the surface textures and colours. Illustrate (photo’s from sketchbook) and fully explain one example for each criteria. Explain how you have covered the criteria.
  5. 5. Unit 11 Develop & Produce Own Ideas a) Create and develop ideas in response to the brief. How did you interpret your brief? What different approaches to the same theme did you explore? What decisions did you make to refine your ideas? b) Plan and produce final outcome using specialist working methods and processes. How did you decide on the final outcome? Why was this the best approach? How did you choose the techniques you’ve used? Did they work effectively? Developing your personal brief a) Through my project I decide to down the fine art root and prepare and present a painting for a hangings to be placed in the head teachers office. I decided to crate a painting/ drawing which is not too bright but is a calming subtle piece which hangs in the back ground. The piece also is to show off the natural side of the college and a decoration for him and any clients which happen to walk in to there. b) I decided to do this via experiment and research. I experimented with mixed media, different materials and different uses of perspectives looking at what angles suited it the most. I also researched into many different artist to gather a style and perspective source and to help decide my choice of media which turned out to be watercolour and fine liner pen. Illustrate (photo’s from sketchbook) and fully explain one example for each criteria. Explain how you have covered the criteria.
  6. 6. The Place in Question Evaluation In this project I looked at a location in the college and looked at different ways to portray it. My location was the allotment at the back of college. I choose this as it had a mixture of organic and manmade elements and structures which I would draw paint or create. I chose to do the fine art brief whereby I was going to create an A3 drawing, painting or sculpture of my area. To begin my project, I went to my chosen location and took a number of photos and sketches to experiment with. The purpose of dong so was to look at different angle I could draw in and to look at the different shapes and texture in my location. I then created a model of the green house so that I could simplify the structure and concentrate on the ways of showing perspective affectively in a sketch. I also researched into different ways to portray selected textures. From this I learnt that manmade structure and surfaces were more regular and were in pattern whereas the natural surfaces were more messy and unorganised. I used this research later on to create my final piece. I then went on to researching different artist which I liked and analysed their style. I then also made studies of their work and another study of my area in the style of that artist or picture. My researches included Julia Potts, a water colour painting of a cityscape from Pinterest, a water colour and pen sketch from Tumblr and another watercolour from Pinterest. Also Helen Musselwhite, Leonid Afremov and Micheal Murphy. Through doing this artist research I decided to do a water colour and fine liner pen sketch which was inspired by both Leonids painting technique which messy lines and bursts of colour and the water colour and pen sketch from Tumblr. This then created my base for what I wanted to do as a final piece. Before starting my initial ideas I created a test piece which I reviewed and showed more r less what I wanted to do. I then made 10 initial ideas and developed 3. After my book was review by peers who thought that 2 of my developed initial ideas were too similar so I created a 4th. I then also look at perspective and researched into different ways to portray different perspectives and view angles. I then used this to experiment with my own location using the skills I had researched. My final step was to create a final plan which I put together, reasoning all my choices and decisions about my final piece and made it. My final piece was an on an A3 board and was based off a picture I used for my 2nd prototype. The painting was done in both fine liner pen and water colours and I used different brushes to create different textures such as the grass and buildings. I am happy with my final outcome as I have used my media well and also showed perspective well through depth and shadow of buildings and plant structure. The hardest part of my piece was creating the depth inside the green house and getting the texture of glass right. Although not perfect I did this by trying to create a smooth gradient of colour and using greys and blue to do this. I particular like the buildings shadows and the grass and gradient bush texture as I think this creates a nice style and good representation of shadow and light. Throughout my project I balanced out my time well and did any work which I felt was necessary for the development of my design. You cans see how I looked at some artist and felt is wasn’t right so did more to find the right style. I spent time and effort into analysing and pulling out aspects I thought would be useful for my final design. I used different Medias to experiment with such as pen pencil paints collage and also used different sources such as books the different art sites. In conclusion I am happy with how my sketch book development and my final piece turned out. If I was to add improvements, I would look at more water colour artist and experiment with just water colour to find new textures I could create.
