20/09/2015 - Hired for the day to draw portraiture of new and returning students, I found myself enjoying the day much more than anticipated. Originally stressing with style, technique and every other thing I could think of, I decided to focus on simplicity.
Giving the visitor a choice in colour of paper and pen, I drew quick outline sketches of body shapes, clothing and hair. No facial detail. 2-4 minutes depending on conversation and enjoyment of the image. And the result was a recognizable drawing of the person sitting before me, and their reactions was almost always positive.
Honestly, what a great fun bunch of students and more. Considering I completed my degree at UEL this June 2015, I was happy to return and see familiar faces whilst also being on a different side of freshers.
These photographs are great, and this was a great push in the right direction of possible opportunities for the future.
