Proposal for Term 3
1) Body of Work - 4 to 6 paintings of mixed sizes
2) Time Frame - 1 to 2 paintings a week for 4 weeks
3) Concept - This term I have been having some issues with my inner critic which has caused a block with painting. My proposal is to explore the notion of " Search and Destroy" from this week's references. I destroy more than search so would like to experiment with a few different processes to try and achieve more balance between the two. I also hope this will free up my technique and turn down the negative self-talk volume.
The different approaches will be :
I) One or two transcriptions of paintings I like that have similar subject matter to mine. I find this a useful way to loosen up and be less judgemental about the painting.
II) Use drawings I have done to paint from, or draw them in paint, as I am more positive about drawing than painting.
III) Paint one or two more versions of an existing painting that I am not happy with.
4) Subject matter - Local landscapes and interior/ exteriors from my plein-air sketches.
