    Started my first sketchbook on Monday and I chose to study space (god knows why) and I've started to slowly link it to area 51 and I really don't know how to develop it next. I'm hoping for an A in this book can anyone suggest any ideas for me to consider, including any experimentation.

    Thank you!!!!

    I'm not doing it for A level but i did very well in it for gcse and I think one of the best things to do if you're aiming for a high level is to link your main theme to more absurd ideas. For example, you could try painting a portrait where a galaxy is inside someone's eyes and there are stars in their hair etc. Or you could do something based on perspectives where you draw a pair of glasses in the centre and paint a normal environment around them such as a park or town but through the glasses lens you could paint 'space' and include planets and asteroids and stars etc. Orrrr you could paint something such as an apple and include a bite in it where there is a galaxy inside the bite. There are many ideas but i'll stop here before I go too ott :P

    I thought you meant the other type of space I'm sure your Art teachers would let you change topic, as you've only just started as I think you can't do much with this topic. If you don't want to change, start on thinking what exctly interests you about space and area 51? With space, you could also link it with the theme of time.

    You could take the approach of looking into people's perceptions of alien. For this you could create your own alien and spaceships.

    Also, you can try and make your own 3D planetary system, of which plamets are orbiting around a person (illustrating on how people think they are the centre of the universe

    Thank you sooo much for these ideas they're amazing - especially the one about stars and galaxies.
