So this was the first exercise I had completed since I stopped my studying in May/June. I found it difficult to ‘get going’ again and understand what the task was asking me to do. I feel that the images that are attached to the exercises (past students work), whilst they can be helpful, I find them also quite distracting and deflect your understanding of each task. However, I use them quite a lot to help me ascertain what the task is asking of me. I completed 2 drawings. One of a complete still life set up and another of a close up of some of the items. To get a clear understanding visually of line, pattern and texture I chose to focus on dried flowers. The 2 drawing seem to be able to capture this better.
