So this is third year…


India, full of bright colour and detailed architecture I am inspired by the culture and colours of India, as it is a unique and busy place full of life. From architecture to animals and festivals India is full of unique inspiration such as the Taj Mahal, which is covered in intricate details and mosaic style patterns. Including aspects of Rococo I will begin my minor project by going through my research and collecting images and objects to draw such as the stonework in The British museum, which I visited over summer and photographs from India itself.

To gain further information on the subject I am going to London on the 10th October 2009 to gain market research and to find the latest in cutting edge design. To visit The Victoria and Albert Museum where they are going to display an exciting exhibition of the Maharaja, the Splendour of India’s Royal Courts, featuring exhibits from the rich and varied culture of royal India. I will take sketches and photograph relevant items, with the hope of drawing jewellery, costumes and weapons. Also to visit relevant fabric and embroidery shops such as Borovicks and The Silk Society. I am also hoping to visit the connecting shop to Hand and Lock for visual and market research.
