Starting Something New

I can't deny my interest in illustration and design but being a traditional painter, there are a few
approaches that I have to adapt to.  The first being to explore the possibilities with many sketches and
see what emerges.  My internal instinct is to get it right, right from the start.  But I've come to realize that you miss out on the discoveries of further exploration.  There should be a dozen more of the pages before I pick up on what has the potential for a successful design.  

The assignment for this is from Lilla Rogers MATS Bootcamp that I'm excited to be enrolled in. Our first assignment is to research and sketch Edwardian brooches, without knowing what the end result will be!  So for the next six months I will immerse myself in the world of design and hope to find a design aesthetic that will remain consistent.

So excited!
