12B: Reviewing your Work

February 6, 2015 at 8:02 pm

I decided that the best way to review the work submitted was to print out the photos and sketches and add some notes or diagrams of my own. I then recorded an explanation of my markups which is included in the videos and below are the pages that I discussed.

Please note that my review is highly a personal and spontaneous critique, and is not a definitive answer. I responded to the work in the manner I would if sketching on location, making a snap judgment. In most cases I have only picked up on one or two aspects in each sketch and some of the points are secondary concepts I would like to develop further down the track!

Some of you might have opinions different from mine. I expect this, as there is no right and wrong in art, but what I most want to share with you is the way I think about these visual problems. My hope is that this will encourage you to have this type of dialogue yourself about your own work. It is not so much making the right decision every time as it is developing a process for self-assessment.

All of the sketches that were submitted were wonderful and I wish that I could have reviewed them all. In the end I decided to review approximately 30 sketches so that I could show how the same themes relate to a variety of works.

And remember the golden rule: We share but we don’t compare!
I have included all the examples below (and they are also included in a separate handout available for download here –  these should be read in conjunction with the videos.
