Passed.....

....... I got a letter at lunchtime to say that I'd passed The Art of Photography.  I missed out on getting a better grade by 2% but considering all the family and health problems I had during the 2 years of doing the course I can't complain about the result.  It won't count towards my textiles degree but it was nice to see what the assessors thought of my work.  You don't get much feedback but what was written was mostly positive.

"Your work shows great potential.  There is some very good work here, which demonstrates your enthusiasm for photography and your ambition to learn and improve.  Presentation is clear and well organized.  There is some strong, visually innovative imagery, particularly assignment 4"
My tutor was pleased with assignment 4 as well, here's a few of the photos I took.

Creative Sketchbooks

I haven't been doing as much sketchbook work as I should for my degree with OCA.  I find it difficult to know what to put in it so when I saw this course with Linda and Laura Kemshall at Design Matters I decided to enrol on it.
