I started filling in the images for the stage set today. I’ve got much further than I thought I would but I’m not sure the thickness of line needs to be expanded to make it stand out futher back in the hall. I’ll have to see how it goes, if there’s time I could make some alterations when I’m nearly finished. It looks much better than I thought it would but the space is hard to fill, I might need to add a few more objects.
Today was the first day of drawing up the design for the set in work. I managed to almost sketch it all today, so tommorrow I can start filling it in. As there’s only this week to get it all done it’s just going to be black and white, but I think this will work well. I used rolls of lining paper to draw out the three seperate scenes over the weekend and although I’ve had to make some alterations due to differences in size I’m happy with the result and it’s been much quicker applying it because I’ve already drawn it all out before.
My boss is really good, I haven’t had to do any of my normal jobs today so I’ve really got stuck in. I’m not half as worried now about how it will look or about getting it completed in time.
My own work is still on hold. I’ve continued to work on ideas for the stage set. But it hasn’t been all hard work, I’ve been sitting out in the garden whist I’ve been drawing. Finally I think I’ve come up with some good ideas for it, although I won’t be convinced until it’s been transfered onto the boards.
I’ve started working out some ideas onto rolls of lining paper that I’ve taped together so I can play around with the composition and make sure the objects are relative in size to one another.
I haven’t done much in preparation for the fellowship show this week. I’ve been working on some paintings about trees which incorporate patterns that are formed from looking at images of tree rings. I haven’t got very far with it, I’ve only painted three so far and there are alterations to be made on all of them but I’ll post photos when I’ve finished them, oh and when I’ve bought a new camera. I can’t find mine, I think I must have left it in Cornwall somewhere.
I’ve spent this weekend researching to develop ideas for a project for work. I’m going to paint the stage set for their little shop of horrors production. The only problem is I’ve got a week to get the ideas together and then just the following week to paint the set. I’m panicking, I don’t know what I’m doing. So I thought I’d just take a little break and write a blog. Right, back to it I think!
I’ve been feeling a little bit lost this weekend. I didn’t know what I’m going to do when I leave the fellowship programme, I felt like this last year when I finished my degree but was fine again when I started the fellowship.
I’ve started working on some new ideas but I’m really slow at producing anything at the moment.
