School’s Out For Summer!

That’s right! As of this Monday night that just passed I am done with Uni for the year. I spent all of last week finishing off artworks for my folio and writing up a few assignments. I’m relieved that it’s all over, it’ll be great to have a bit of time off, but I know in a few weeks I’ll be missing uni like crazy.

I’m working on keeping myself busy so I don’t miss it too much though. I’ve just started volunteering¬†at a local gallery and in a few weeks I’ll start my Christmas Job – decorating custom Christmas balls! I’m going to be just covered in glitter constantly. Of course I’m also still drawing pictures all the time, I’ve got a bunch of pages in my art diary to scan up. I’ve also been toying with the idea of having a crack at NaNoWriMo and I want to start working on my crochet again (I spent a few hours tonight just untangling yarn). No rest for the wicked right?

I was kind of silly and forgot to take photos of all of my finished works for the year, I’ll just have to do that when I get my grades back and the email letting me know when to pick up my artworks.

I did remember to take this one photo while I was finishing things off.

On the left we have “La Madamoiselle” who was from the week we were working with a limited palette using only complimentary colours. On the right is a painting that was created using a monochromatic black created from mixing other colours, and of course greys by then adding white to it. I can’t remember what I named that one. I’ll find out when I get it back. I probably named it something like “skull and candle” or maybe “still life”. I’m not always original with my titles.

Well look at the time! I should probably head to bed soon, it’s going to be a struggle keeping some kind of regular sleeping schedule now that I really don’t have to!

Drawlloween Week One

I really should be finishing off the last of my assignments and artworks for my folio but instead I’ve been taking part in the Drawlloween challenge on instagram. A lot of people also seem to be doing it as Inktober as well, but since I’ve been enjoying my coloured pencils so much lately I’ve been drawing with them instead.

I’ve even fallen a little behind with Drawlloween, but here enjoy the first weeks worth of pictures that I’ve just scanned up while scanning up some art for a presentation I have due in tomorrow.

The Return of Tracey’s Thighs

I’m on mid-semester break this week so I treated myself to a life drawing session tonight. And what a treat it was! The model they had lined up had bailed on them, and Tracey (my favourite!) was filled in.

It was the perfect opportunity to play with my new coloured pencils.
