I thought id blog a piece of work from a student who is currently studying the botanical illustration course. I felt this was a lovely piece and liked the way the student had varied the tones in the leaves from light to dark. This is a tricky subject and the student has tackled it well.
This has been one of my favourite pieces of artwork from the students this week and I like the way the student has balanced the positioning of the boar with the anchor / pole. The colours are very natural, often its all too easy to use bright vivid colours which come forward. Hope this inspires!
This is a really strong piece of work visually, the black and white cut out works well with the subject and the composition works well too.
This piece is by a painting and drawing course student and the bright rich colours of the apples caught my eye. I think they sit well together and are balanced by the central apple being red. I also love the shadows and light on the ground plane, excellent study and I hope you all like Continue Reading

This is the latest drawing to catch my eye and I think chickens and roosters make great subjects to draw and paint. The student has really tried to capture the shine and sheen on the tail feathers beautifully within the medium of coloured pencil. Very vibrant work.
