I'll admit, this is a low attempt at getting some compliments! I feel a bit crap tonight, dissertation work is draining and I feel like I'm going to have to do all of it all over again anyway in some retakes so it feels even more pointless!!

I'm training to teach without really wanting to be a teacher and havent slept in ages! lol.

I thought I'd share with you a painting I'm very proud of, in the hope that some of you might enjoy it. I know my art lecturer won't have anything nice to say about it so I may as well try my luck here before I hand it in on Weds!!

It took me about 7 hours and is about 25cm wide by 20cm tall.

No I went from 5 until 10 and had really disturbed sleep. My plan was to be tucked up by 2 tonight ready for a big day tomorrow, but think it will be more like 3 now.


Thankyou for all of your compliments. Its nice to hear them.(read them...whatever lol)

My art lecturer has her favourites and I'm not one of them. She forgets we're training to be teachers, not on an art degree but doesnt praise any extra work we do.

I worked in the national gallery for a week last year as part of my course, produced a small sketchbook full of notes, drawings and reflections which I spent hours on-I stayed on in the gallery until close at 7pm each night while the other students went shopping from 3pm, spent my weekend in the tate gallery, and portrait gallery for extra understanding and worked until midnight updating my notes and just put my heart into it. Handed it in with my sketchbook and all she said was 'I didn't ask you to keep a sketchbook, you've wasted your time'.

Bit disheartening, but I'm still really proud of it and show it to interested parties so I'm still glad I did it.

sorry about the rant! lol

Can i ask you what type of teacher are you training to be and where please?, My GF is training to be primary school teacher and has chosen art as one of her subjects for her final year,

Thanks

PS , Excellent detail on the pic. You definately have talent and deserve and excellent grade, I hope the lecturers see this and reward you for the effort you have put in and not because you are not one of the favourites!

Good Luck!:thumbsup:

Hi H_K :)
I like the rose picture very much. I'm a fan of Les Roses : Pierre-Joseph Redouté's work. You've captured the light on the petals and all the delicate details so carefully. It's that realistic I can almost smell rose otto mmm:)
Your teacher seems a bit mean regarding the sketch book. I always thought art teachers were the kindest of the bunch till i read that!
