After getting my feedback I was happy with the grade but I wasn’t happy with the work I produced. I wanted to work on it more and happily we had few weeks of independent study. I decided to do some more drawings showing more techniques which I can then translate in to motifs and patterns in Photoshop,
Flamingo, painted using acrylic paints. I’ve used a pulling technique to create texture. I am really proud of it however I think I need to work on the feet/claws a little bit more.
Parrots. I created those parrots using dry paint pulling technique. I like the textures on the wings and bodies of the birds but again I need to work on the claws.
Parrot in watercolours. I wanted to experiment with a different media so I chose to use watercolour to represent the vibrant colours. I used a black fine lined for outlines as I wanted to show detail of the wings.
Parrot in acrylic. I decided to do the same parrot in acrylic again as I feel like my acrylic painting skills are better. Also I think it work better for the collection I have in mind.
I really like the pink and white flowers that I’ve done using dry paint pulling technique. I think they will look good in my designs.
