As there seems to be quite a bit of artistic talent around here, I thought I would start a pencil sketch section .....

Looks good. Will it be cast in bronze? Sounds like a good decision to go for the degree. Lots more to it than simply doing the course, it will expose you to different ways of thinking and expressing yourself. If talent is a factor in the decision you are sure of a place. Best of luck.

Ribbon pics give daily pleasure. Well worth the investment! Good decision to hang them in the kitchen, my eye strays to them while doing everyday tasks and I'm sure they are an aid to thinking about history! I'll bet you never thought of that one.

hehe i guess they are, no i hadnt thought of that. whatever gets the blood to circulate by jogging some memories cant be bad.

i have looked into cost of having it done in bronze but its over £1000 so i wont be doing that. later maybe when the metal prices drop, but just too costly for now, but never say never.

I dont think i will get a degree from where i want to go as its a foundation degree i think its like having 4 A levels. Its like entry to uni, not that i want to go still. i think its a compromise between going to uni and starting out on my own. My time hopefully will be split betwen art school (3 days) and doing my own Art. anyway i havent been offered a place yet, ive still got my fingers crossed on that one

i took a photo of gramp with the sculpture

It's a very good likeness, further than that, you've captured something more and that's the difference between a photo and art. Very impressive. I've got half a dustbin full of brass turnings, if you pop in I'll donate them! (Well, it would be a start!)

Have you looked at the scrap price of clean brass turnings?

i know the price was high, from what i remember about £3000 a ton but that was about 2 years ago so it is probably higher now. like everything else!

ive been using Acrylics today. i painted great grampy jack. i am doing old people as part of my As level art so i will be adding this in with my project

Good, once again you have caught more than the image. A lot of experience in that face!

Thankyou. ive tried to keep the painting loose, but i find it hard. i keep thinking he doesnt look real. if you know what i mean.

Its just trying a different approach, but idont know if its me or not, i think i need to try lots of different syles, but with no tutor i dont know what i am doing.

I like the new painting style you are experimenting with...having gone on a similar journey to you, from painstaking pencil sketches with minute detail to palette knives and oils I know how hard it is to keep loose and i know what you mean about the not looking real, there is a cartoon element somehow, did you do it from a photo? i love the texture in the beard .
