My proposal for the Observation and Experiment module is to explore animals and humans in their natural habitat. I will observe my home setting alongside animals residing in my neighbouring environment.
I have chosen a broad subject matter in order to give my project a freedom to experiment and observe in an unrestricted way.
I have recently moved to the countryside from London, so will enjoy using this project as a way of discovering my local environment. Life at home will be a consistent source of exploration, which as a subject which will come in handy when it’s rainy outside!
My goal is to gain confidence in sketching from life and not be afraid to make mistakes. I have never been able to keep a sketchbook, as too often than not, I would tear out the pages and throw out my attempts. I would like use this project to face up to my fear of making bad drawings.
