The first day of figure painting was intimidating. I hadn’t had the freedom to take any art courses earlier, and I was walking into a class full of third years in Drawing and Painting, Illustration or General Art. Digital Futures is more about tech, design and sometimes business. Throughout the course, I worked on my painting and traditional art skills which helped me to use more colour in my digital work.
I’m happy I took the course. I’m certain I gained a new lens in which to see colour. I’m also more ok with the feeling of “what am I doing here?” because I know it can lead to growth.
