Assignment 2 In your sketchbook

Were you able to mix and match colours accurately?
Overall the colours appeared to ‘work’ together. Occasionally, I felt that more work was needed.
Were you able to use the colour expressively?
This took a while to achieve, but after experimenting and looking at magazines and the internet, this became easier.
Can you now see colour rather than accepting what you think you see? This has been a difficult exercise, as the perception of what you see has been holding me back. But on reflection, as it progressed I became aware of elements, previously missed.
Did you prefer working with watercolours or gouache paints? What was the difference?
Watercolours seemed to be the better media to use as it was unpredictable and showed variation. The Gouache wasn’t easy to use and was a little too harsh in its application.
How successful were the colour exercises in Stage 5? How did they compare to the painting exercises?
The colour exercises were very useful, with different marks and colours, no too pictures were the same. The painting exercise however did show that using colour different variations could be achieved.
Is there anything you would like to change or develop?
The exercises proved invaluable, but I think I have narrowed my options by the theme I have chosen. However overall I was very pleased with the work achieved so far. The Stage 6 exercise was so vibrant and the texture produced was far better than I hoped for. A definite for any future designs!
