To ensure I was prepared for my crit, I decided to get these paintings finished so that I knew what to present. I wanted to include a mixture of realistic colour schemes and colour experiments to get feedback and see what other people’s opinions of them were. I also included a sheep painting amongst several goat paintings as I felt my sheep painting was very successful through composition and colour schemes.
I tried to make the paintings relate to each other in various ways through colours used or the size of the bars which have different effects and outcomes. I also went to Wilko to purchase some Velcro as a quick and easy measure to present my work though in future for my formative assessment, I would like to have some more permanent measures to the hanging of my work using picture hooks and nails.
Overall, I feel very confident and prepared for my crit next week and I feel that having feedback will help to inform how I move forward in this project.
Other people’s crits:
I got to see some other peopled’s crits in the two weeks before my crit which was helpful in allowing me to understand how to present my work and have inspiration. I really liked the different subjects and methods people had used in their own work.
