If you haven't already fallen asleep with this you will be glad to know that this here is the final proposed Project in my Course Plan which will try to combine all that I expect to cover in the coming year:
PROJECT 5 : Semi-Abstract Figure Composition.
This final, extended, project will bring together all my experiments and findings from previous focussed studies and projects to create a series of paintings that expresses figures in a semi-abstract manner. The intention is to establish this way of painting as my own and produce sufficient work to a high quality which will form the basis of my next solo exhibition.
Theoretic Study: Looking at the work of artists such as William Scott, Richard Diebenkorn, Roger Hilton, Keith Vaughan, and also contemporary artists, such as Jacqueline Watt, who developed their figurative painting in a semi-abstract manner.
Time Allocation: 20 weeks
Outcomes: Sketchbook drawings;
Composition and colour studies;
10 finished paintings, or more.
Theoretic Study findings.
You will see that this is the longest period of work at 20 weeks when i hope to simply be producing at least one painting per week.
Next week I will start to post up some of the work I have been engaged in for Project 1, Painting 1.
Have a cup of coffee, or a glass of wine and calm yourselves down - this is going to get a lot more interesting!
