So I've started my new college course, a BA in Fine Art for a couple of years. It's definitely different to what I'm used to aka. not that much creativity involved. My classmates are very nice, liking the diversity of opinions and personalities so far. I'm definitely using new materials I've never touched, the most terrifying being a chisel 0.0, and the most bone chilling, being white spirits and turpentine (both of which are dangerous to my throat, as I have a long standing condition from a previous illness) But since my first day, I have:
-made a handmade canvas, and MDF board (both primed,hangable on walls and almost finished painting)
-several life drawings (as displayed on my page)
- made a few mess ups (lost my locker keys, forgot my wallet twice, etc etc)
- gained some new friends
-shameful delays on illustrations
Despite being exhausted from work and getting used to it, my relief and comfort is, and always have been, my best friends who I have made time to spend with both at the end of summer, and over the last few weeks. They have helped me through some very difficult personal hurdles, and continue to be of great support to me. I could not thank them more for it if I tried. And I so look forward to seeing them again soon next month for Eirtakon! In the meantime, I will find whatever precious time I can to see to illustration ideas again (as never ending comfort). Goodnight!
