I originally started this blog as a working log for the OCA Drawing 1 course as part of the BA (Honors) in Painting. Due to unfortunate circumstances I have had to quit the degree programme but I will not let this stop me from continuing my art journey.
Before starting the Drawing 1 course I had only ever used a pencil or pen to draw with for sketches or studies for crude paintings, most of which I had painted when I was very young.
Following the OCA drawing course I learnt to draw with many different types of media, develop my skills as an artist and begin to see things differently.No longer do I simply look at someone’s face when I speak to them, I now begin to draw that person’s face in my mind.
I have started to see myself as an artist rather than someone who likes to draw.
