Observational study for an International GCSE Art project - A comprehensive sketchbook page based on the natural forms of shells. In addition to trialling a range of media and drawing techniques, students looked more closely at texture. Charcoal drawings of textured surfaces, as well as an etching of a nautilus shell (with notes about the Golden Section) are included.
Visual Journal Case Study: This outstanding International GCSE Art and Design Coursework project was completed by Manisha Mistry in 2003, while studying IGCSE Art and Design (CIE 0400) at ACG Strathallan College, Auckland, New Zealand. Nice to see how she was inspired by both nature and art. Could inspire some sketchbook studies in the galleries.
