It was Shakespeares 400th anniversary of his birth the other day , and i was watching the RSC programme on the bbc , they had extracts from shakespear , opera and dance which these very loose sketches was my attempt to capture  a dance between othello and desdemona, big heavy marks for othello and more fluid delicate marks for desdemona.

Novembers Best bits of Sketch a day

novsketchaday

It has been a busy and emotional kind of month. and I will admit that i have missed a few days (9 to be precise!) sketching  this month, and sometimes it has felt like a chore. (which is worrying as i have only been doing it 3 months and have another 9 month ahead of me!)

BUT , this month (December) it is my aim to be consistent and put more effort into my sketches, to get myself back on track .

I am going to try to gather some different materials to try drawing with , and maybe think about choosing a theme for this month, like just focus on people and portraits, as it is a family time of year for me.

As always thanks for looking and reading , and good luck in any projects you have going on!

A Sketch A Day! Octobers best bits..

Best of Octobers Sketches

Here are a few of the better sketches that I did during october, for the challenge I set myself, randomly, of doing the Sketch a day for a year. I Hope that this will improve my drawing skills and just keep me in the habit of making things and sketching .

I also hope to post at least once a month on here, of my best ones, but I will be posting everyday ( most of the time) on instagram. It is a good motovational tool to help me complete my sketch a day!

If you would like to follow me on there to see everydays attempts, just search alisonsloggett!

Thanks for looking!

Used wiping, cotton buds, and plant material, and taking a second print so sometimes got a positive and negative, when using things like plant bits.

 

I was invited to attend a little gathering at the Print co operative I recently joined, to meet with some of the other new members. Tea ,chatting and a bit of print making, jolly good Sunday afternoon I think !

Lockleaze Festival

I was asked to add some work to a pop up exhibition at the new Hub building in Gainsborough Square, Lockleaze,  Bristol.

My work was amongst the work of the local art group who meet at The Cameron Centre run by Pam Sacree.

There was a lovely range of work in lots of mediums. There was lots of work done for only a short time up, but well worth it if it gets more people interested  in going along and getting creative!

 

I am Working on this very large piece, for my Westonbirt exhibition.

It will be made up of lots of little drawings that I gathered from visitors to westonbirt in a week in April.

Visitors drawings

I asked them to draw their favourite part of the tree or a part they found interesting.

Now I am going to put them all together hopefully to make a whole tree out of the parts they have drawn.

These are some images of the first stages, I wanted a bit of colour in there  so the background will be inked in the shape of a tree, the pics above are some of the details of the ink, which I have been letting do its own thing up to a point, to create interesting marks and layers !
