***Right then lovely people the time has come***
With the new year fast approuching it is time to start my search for a perminant place to call home(well at least for my food). I have some pretty mad cooking skills(although i cannot pour for chemex coffee at once) and i am ready to build a new team and make a fresh mark. I hold no preconceptions for any venue space and i am not looking for a job, more of an oppertunity or partnership. I know who i am as a chef, where i want to go and i am fairly sure how i will get there(or at least i should say i am looking forward to the journey again). -
If you have a venue, know somebody who knows sombody or if you are infact just somebody then get in touch, share and pass on my details. 2019 is going to be the year and this is the start of the new kids on the block. firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ve not drawn in around 2 weeks? And I’m OK with that. Even a month ago I wouldn’t have been fine with that as my art drives my focus and is how I identify. However I have been focusing on other relationships in my life other than just my art. That includes a relationship with myself. I’ve sort of come to some kind of clarity that I need to treat my art like a person. It needs time to breathe and re-coup. If you smother it, it can’t grow organically and as someone who works intuitively this is so important. I’m quite proud of myself to coming to this realisation and am actually acting on it. @joanna_lillie and I have started writing letters to each other and I got back from a day out yesterday to one. It gave me some clarity and just shows how people can be so similar. It’s important to open up and be honest so then you can be honest with yourself. I am currently Cornwall bound and am planning to get some art in and just try to go with the pace that is thrown at me. A bit deflated from an intense week of interviews and that’s meant my mentality has dipped but I’m learning that things do go up and down. You can’t always control it. Breathe.
I have been discussing the difference between concept drawings and finished drawings with a colleague of mine this week. The Sketch Plan or Concept Plan is a loose, working drawing, sketched maybe with pencil or even watercolour or charcoal- and is simply to give a sense of the design- where paths could go and terraces and borders, for example on a new scheme. There should be room for discussion and creativity and for things to change and develop in the next Client Meeting.
Once decisions have been made, Final Plans can be drawn up- they are more detailed, neatly drawn up in ink or on CAD, they are accurate and to scale. A landscaper should be able to build the garden with your plans so every detail should be carefully considered- and isometric or axonometric drawings used too, if needed, to help the client visualise the garden in 3D.
This drawing is a zoom in of a much larger Final Plan for an Arts & Crafts garden design showing paving and planting details.
Planting Plans showing where each plant will go in the garden are also drawn up along with a separate Planting List. #drawings#gardendesign#artsandcrafts @alice_blount_garden_design #gardendesigner#handdrawn#cad#unique#plans#gardendesignersoninstagram#conceptplans#sketchplans#finalplans#plantingplans#pergola#rill#paving#steps#devongardendesign#oxfordshire#warwickshire#devon#cornwall#somerset#westcountry
