UCA Farnham Fine Art Degree Show - An Overview.

To kick-off our new blog segment 'Our Humble Opinion' I visited the degree show at the university that Kayla and myself attended, it seemed like a nice way to start this new review blog segment and ended up being a nostalgic trip for me. 

Works from Left to Right: Louise Scillitoe-Brown, Ann Miller, Flo Yapp and Jay Sparks.

Although I only managed to see the Fine Art degree show, all the universities courses are displaying their final works.  Here's a link to the UCA website with more details on the show, and all the important dates.  The show runs until the 6th of June and I really recommend going. (I'm considering a second visit.)

As a disclaimer of sorts this installment post covers as much of the fine art course's degree show as I can manage, so it's more of an overview of the show than a detailed review. 

So that this blog post doesn't become dissertation worthy in length (and possibly induce some horrifying flashbacks for any of the graduating artists who may be reading this) I've kept a lot of my musings short and sweet.

Traveled Drawings

Due to a little side-project I've got going on I really slacked on my sketchbook drawings this week.  Ive got a bunch of drawings that I've been working on on the way to various places.

I often draw when traveling by train, and as I was on quite a few of those last Friday here's the photos of those sketchbook pages.

Few more flowers

So I have done not a lot this last week if I am completely honest - the two main things I have been working on can't be shown yet and aren't sketchbook

This is one of my odds and sods pages where I brainstorm random little ideas that can be used for bigger images and ideas -

Doodled Sketchbook

Super quick update from me this week. 
I've been working on a couple of different projects recently and so I'm trying to save up the photos from those for a blog post dedicated just to that project.  Plus I love looking back at the first doodles and ideas alongside the finished canvas/painting/drawing, there's something really satisfying about it.

 I added some coloured pencil seaweed drawings... adding to my obsession.

Abstract flowers sketchbook

So for the last two weeks I can only be described as being easily distracted - thus there has been a lack of creative juices flowing... I started trying to improve of my doodles by adding new ideas and processes to it - like shaded areas and detail lines:


Really want to add a dash of colour to the doodles
