Here is a good example of the children’s book illustration assignment Firey Fred. The student has used their watercolour techniques well and kept the whole scene light and fresh. Don’t you just love the look on the Dragons face!
One of our tutors forwarded this piece to me for the college news blog and I’m so pleased I am able to show it here. It was created by a student who is currently studying the oils course. To me it gives a feeling of warmth and happiness, although there is some conflict and unease with the cold blue cloth and the other colours which I feel makes the viewer stop and study this piece. I find it fascinating when use of colour can achieve this feeling within a painting and perhaps its something more of our students can experiment with.
