UWE BLOG: 2020: YEAR 2: SEMESTER 1: DRAWING & PRINT (BA Hons): TIN STANTON 

This blog contains highlights of my 2nd year at UWE, and includes ideas, discoveries and works which I feel are relevant to the course made both inside and out of the studio, as well as outlining the processes I have learned.
 

The blog also includes my 'Studio File' ( A collection of personally influential artists and recent gallery visits) as well as my Professional Practice experiences.

Probably an odd choice of influential artist, but I was bought a book which I have been rather taken with. His style, colour palette and general feel of painting is very different to my own, but his textures and simple compositions are compelling.


The image below for example shows a huge degree of detail to produce a simple image and a whole palette of colours to give the overall feel of that muted green and brown.

This acrylic painting on canvas (90cmx60cm) took a week or so to get to a stage where the client could see its progress and comment on changes. Communication throughout the process isn't always possible, but it does help to keep the painting on track.


As you can see the painting retains the original elements from the digital mock-up but with more detail and richness.

Working with just one day in the studio at Arnolfini has been a bit of a challenge - Returning to work after a week each time, so my studio neighbour Matt Hending and I decided to attempt a painting from the same reference photograph.


I used this over a period of 3 weeks to practice a few techniques - washes, glazes etc to get the feel I was working for. I'm not entirely sure I like the end result, but it has helped to understand how I can add more depth and detail with a painting without being over-detailed.
