Into the second week of Uni and the homework is mounting up. :(
This blog will now become part of my mark so I will be posting my work for comments. I will try and reflect on the work myself, though ever critical so won't have to try too hard!
I have only turned 60 degrees so far from the summer of fun, festivals, friends and frivolities. I am still cleaning the house, cooking dinner, walking the dog, checking the children's homework and even went out Friday and Saturday night. It will all change, once again I will be trying to fit 400 degrees into a circle. I can tell it's already happening because I just turned down an invite for a shopping trip to Bluewater with 3 girlfriends next Sunday...told them "I had too much homework!"
Researching gardens of Pompeii at the moment for a PPP. It is fascinating how well the city was preserved if you've never seen it in detail before, I shall try and post my presentation for you to view.
Working on a competition entry, I have made a sketch model which needs development but following yesterdays' crit I have some ideas for improvements. I will be developing the ideas on sketch up and trying out photoshop as I know how I want the garden too look. This need translation onto paper....and better time management this week....
Sketch model for competition entry, 1st initial ideas
Teaching tomorrow and Thursday, need to complete a scheme of work up to Christmas so won't be doing and Uni work for those two days.
Uni work from last year with reflection:
I have work from last year to post as part of this process:
Client and Process
- Too much purple
- Planting too Basic-ran out of time to add any more plants to Sketch-up model, did not fully show what I had in mind.
- Structure too big, chunky and not elegant enough
- Struggled with drawing up from initial designs which awfully rendered. Need/needed help with rendering.
- The scheme of plants were a good combination of colour, form and texture
- Materials strategy was exactly what I had in mind for the site and client requirements
- Perspective views worked well, demonstrating the ambience of the garden I had envisaged
Will try and upload a couple of videos from Digital Landscapes hand-ins from last year later, Blog is telling me there are errors when up loading...will need investigate...
(notched up to 80 degrees in the last few hours, not even had 1 cup of tea!)
