The last Life drawing session of the year

So this are some drawing that I did In our last life drawing session.
Since is our last  session of the year, it  was a lot more open to interpretation and I found it very relaxing. Using continue line and spending less than 30 minutes in each drawing, allow me to develop a  new way of drawing and it also taught me that things don't have to be perfect. I´m actually going to miss this learning sessions

You can see more developments at my life drawing page

Today its project 4 deadline so it's time to set all our work in the table for assessment next Monday.

I decided that my table presentation should have a botanical/marine life /naturalist look.
I must say I love the whole vibe of the space like this. Maybe it´s like a visit to the natural history museum? I don't know. Whatever it is, I like the vibe very much.
Some of my samples were displayed as jewellery prototypes. There´s  a lot of potential in it.

I also manage to frame all my illustrations and lino/tile prints and they look so professional. I´m really happy with it.
Unfortunately my plant pot vessels were still in the kiln by the time I set the table, so only be displayed next Monday during the assessment.


Sea barnacles inspired porcelain/paper clay vessels. My vessels are made of fine porcelain and paper clay and I use lino print for the patterns inside and plaster slabs for the textures outside. For colour , instead of normal glazing I use stain pigment diluted in water and splash it around each piece wile the clay was still wet to create a watercolour effect, then they were fired at 1000ºc, poured with clear glaze and then fired at 1260ºc.
