Pete Talked about Pierre Bonnard in the first drawing workshop. When I am making the 9 images for Madame Bovary, I want to concentrate on the importance of objects within the novel and how they link the book together. It is useful to look at Bonnard's paintings as they are rich and textured, yet the subtle representation of certain objects within the composition give those objects extra meaning and importance. I would like my final images to have depth and texture but also for the object to be clear within the composition.

On Monday we did a workshop about drawing from film. It was really useful and made me really loosen up with my drawings. I had a film of Madame Bovary already so I did some drawings from it using some techniques we had gone through at the workshop. I timed myself and only spent 10 minutes on each one, using bold, heavy medias.
We got set a brief to make four small books that deal with one event within our novels and to concentrate on sequencing the imagery. I decided to work with some photographs I'd taken over summer for the project and the section of Madame Bovary where Emma is sneaking to her lover's house early in the morning. It took a while to get these right and I'm still not completely satifsfied but this is how they ended up.

The first project we've been set in second year is "Fiction". We have been asked to pick a novel from a booklist and draw people, places and objects to do with it over the summer break. I chose Madame Bovary by Gustave Flaubert. These are some drawing I've done so far.
