Executive Summary: Area 2: Learning to Learn

I preferred the Learning to Learn area of the module as I felt the drawing elements involved suited my creative needs better and I have noticed a big improvement in my drawing skills and ability to see perspective which I previously struggled with.

In this module I experimented with different drawing styles and found my preferred style is using ink as it allows me to draw freely and confidently. I began taking my sketchbook diary with me whenever I went and this greatly helped me to want to draw what I saw and sometimes interpret it in differing styles. I rediscovered my passion for drawing and sketching throughout the months doing this module as I used to draw as often as I could however I stopped and briefly lost my skill and understanding of it.

I enjoyed and benefitted from the independence of the sketchbook diary exercise and variety of subject matters we could cover as I often find I lose interest and it quickly becomes a chore when repeating the same type of task.
At times my perfectionism got the better of me as I found myself taking far too long and spending hours on getting some drawings to the standard I wanted rather than limiting myself to a certain amount of time. If I had been stricter with my time management I would have not only improved quicker and become more confident in creating quick sketches but I would have created more drawings too.

My strengths definitely lie in the creative area of the sketchbook diary and the freedom it gave me. I enjoyed myself whilst completing each drawing, especially the drawings of buildings which involved perspective as previously I would have avoided any form of perspective drawing due to lack of confidence and skill however now I feel very confident with it.
