Andy Taylor Message to Students

Andy taylor has the following message for his students with activities to do at home

Sketchbook Project

Until I get to see you all again I would like you to put together a collection of sketches into a personal sketchbook. This is to be an account of how you are spending your time at the moment.

Draw and paint the things around you from life. Try for a degree of accuracy of proportion and a sense of design and composition. That doesn’t mean to say tight detail, although some of it could be. You could even go towards some abstract work.

I would like you to try a variety of materials, some conventionally and some in unexpected ways. Surprise me with your techniques and unusual effects.

Look at some good examples of sketchbooks online.

People to look at might include:

Aaron Blaise (YouTube), Joseph Zbukvic (his website), James Gurney (YouTube), Norman Ackroyd, Cesar Santos (YouTube), Filipe Almeida Urban sketching (YouTube).
