    So the title of our portfolio is FORCES.
    I need to do a primary sketch by Monday yet i have no idea of which direction I'm going in :/ Does anyone have an idea of an object i could sketch that would fit into any topic when i later decide?

    Heres a list of topic I came up with related to forces:

    Imposing architecture
    Human use or neglect/peeling paint/rusted metal
    Weathering
    Looking up at buildings

    Natural forces/beauty
    Natural disasters/beaches and pebbles
    Harnessing natural forces
    Power of animal’s jaws
    Sports – force of the human body
    Gravity – space – astronauts

    Bending, twisting, melting, freezing
    Pressing, crushing, stretching, pushing, pulling – hot candle wax

    Force of Love

    I love painting animals and out of the above list I'm most interested in the Force Of Love...
    I really don't want to do any human portraiture as I'm not very good at it, does anyone have any better ideas? I basically have to choose 2 and then link them...
    Any help would be greatly appreciated as I seem to have hit a mind-blank...

    I just got given this paper and i'm also stuck so I guess we can both help each other?

    I came up with these ideas in my lesson today:-

    1. Force of fear
    2. Force of surprise
    3. Force of society - peer pressure etc.

    Im the same. Hit a mind blank and can't draw human faces/bodies and my strengths are with patterns so...

    Hope I helped a little....

    Ooh your ideas sound great!
    I decided on doing the force of love combined with the force of movement, its always good to have two topics that you can merge together as you have more options of topics you can use. For my first primary study I drew a melting candle, for my second one I drew a rose and my first secondary study is of a baby elephant walking around with its mother so I'm just going with the flow here

    Sounds great! I chose personality after all, which I can include body art in as that is a strength of mine. I can also include emotion which is a good thing to study!

    I have focused on the forces in fashion. I know that this is something that people do not really think of as something that has a lot of force but in reality it does. I am mainly looking at shoes. People are judged on the clothes that they wear and a lot of people dress to make an impact on their appearances.
    But I'm finding it hard to annotate why shoes are forceful. Any help?

    they're a girls best friend! hahah.
    naa but on a serious note, you could show how just from someone's shoes, you can stereotypically tell their personalities - e.g trainers,heels,comfortable,uncom fortable,vibrant,dull,branded,no n branded- about maybe their age perhaps, their personality etc.
    you can use some good quotes too like 'good shoes will take you good places' etc, I find that i feel my art work is more symbolic and meaningful with the addition of quotes :-)
    I'm sorry this is kinda crap but I can't think of much this late good luck!

    oh & btw- I'm also doing the force of love! along with the force of beauty, so far I feel so excited for my project which is really good because I practically hated & hence failed my ordinary and extraordinary one! but I'm a bit stuck on artists studies and I need two... can anyone suggest any good artists that may have anything to do with love? for example paintings/sketches of friends,family,lovers, etc.
    I already am aware of gustav klimt- the kiss (If I said that right)
    but it's really not my style...
    My strength is in drawing people, thanks !
    & good luck everyone!

    I had this for my GCSE art exam work and I decided to look at forces of nature and I then developed this into elemental forces. I went to the woods near my house and took photos of water (My original idea) for primary research but then I realised that studying water wouldn't be such a good ides, so I changed it to look at earth as an element. And then for my final piece (I got an E for my final piece and my coursework, my teacher hated me) I took a picture of a tree and edited it on photoshop and then painted it and used biro over the top.
