Tutor Report for Sketchbook Module

Nina O’Connor 513049 (3)

In response to the tutor’s feedback, I signed up to a local drawing class which has been hugely beneficial.

it was also suggested that I might try to finish the customised hardback book “possibly using another artist as a starting point. You might also change the cover, by collaging, texturising the surface, maybe adding text“.  I made a start on this, looking at Georgia O’Keeffe’s work which was very enjoyable, but didn’t do as much as i’d hoped.

I loved the exuberance of her work but found it really difficult to achieve a similar effect with paint.   It was a very useful exercise in mixing and made me appreciate her skill.

As suggested I also looked at altered books, including Tom Phillips’ Humament’, which I hadn’t seen before.

I enjoyed the artistry of the altered books but had no desire to try it for myself, although I am drawn to artists’ books and would definitely like to further explore bookmaking skills.

I added to the sketchbook how much i enjoyed working in the book and how it encouraged a playful approach.
