Drawing – Week One

In drawing week one we drew from a real life model. With each drawing we had certain adjustments we needed to make that gave us a new drawing experience. The adjustments would also help us to try and forget all the bad habits we might have picked up. For example, trying to draw with out non-dominant hand whilst not looking at the paper. I found these exercises very helpful as I find it very hard not to overthink and I get frustrated when I can’t get everything perfect. I personally think the drawings I did with my non dominant hand while not looking at the paper turned out to be the some of the best outcomes I have had from drawing in awhile – I liked their fluidity and how they captured the essence of the life model. After this experience I started my own personal sketchbook where I have started to work on and develop on the areas of drawing where I feel my skills are weaker. I try to work for at least 30 minutes every day in the sketchbook with quick drawing exercises and figure drawings.

My name is Daizi Davies and I am 19 years old from Cardiff. I like to draw inspiration for my art from my personal life and the challenges I face day to day. I like to experiment with many different mediums but the common link that all my work has is that it is highly autobiographical. My main aim with anything I create is to tell a story and make whoever is viewing it feel something. I am currently studying Fine Art at DeMontford University and I hope to grow as an artist as well as learn new things that will help me in my future as an artist.
