the top is an ainu doll i drew from a museu (ainu is Hokkaido's indigenous people)
I really like this print, we used woodcut and i think oil or wax layer
we added colour but it was very difficult to control
Dry point etch, i didn't have time to do the mountain so it was just an outline because the tree took so long
This one looked good on the pvc when it was wet but didn't print very well, oh well!
This week been doing a lot of painting.
Monday we started a watercolour landscape painting
Tuesday we started painting the shoes
Wednesday we started painting final's for the poster
Thursday....hmmm i carried on with the poster
and Friday i started painting the temptation final, which i'm stressing over cus i really don't like my design (it's the guardian fish moment all over again!)
I pretty much finished my necklace in silver accessories, just need to buff it i think so heavens know what i'll be doing next week ....hopefully no more filing
and we made a folder (book binding) in print, and put the photosensitive paint on the screens for next week, it was odd that we did several layers and there paint was much more illuminous green then ours
I went to the shop that i went to on saturday straight after college on wednesday, an hours walk, and i got some books....and a totoro pillow....i swear im buying no more totoro stuff after this! (but it's so cute!)
Last night some of the girls from my class and I went round Kei's grandmothers house to have a chocolate party in celebration of kei's birthday last weekend.
It was very yummy, and was a good chance for me to be social
It's been snowing lots!!!!
This is the dorms i'm staying in
a lighthouse in the middle of land
Today's destination...a book store and other stuff like character merchandise
Took all afternoon to find it and spent it barely anytime there cus I had to trench back to the dorms in time for tea. I did manage to pick up some studio ghibli stuff for me (i know i've bought loads already) and some cheeky presents for others
didn't have time to look properly at the books so i'll have to go back another time
but it's an hour walk away, and it really knackered me out walking through about 5 cms or more of snow
I haven't posted this week about college so here it is in one big block
Monday I finished my perspective drawing with colour using what i would call felt tip pens but expensive ones
Tuesday was more filing in silver accessories and started on drawing shoes in the afternoon
Wednesday was advertising illustration, been doing a hokkaido shaped outline filled with botanics of the seasons
Thursday started silk screen print
Friday more on temptation, and then portrait in the afternoon which is going well
