I am now several weeks behind my submission date for the unit on colour and whilst I could blame busy, Christmas etc. much of the reason is of my own making. When I started this unit I thought I’d be clever and scan the materials, then rather than working systematically through the exercises, I could take relevant pictures whenever the opportunities arose. Well it hasn’t worked or at least it has not had the desired effect. Yes I did take pictures and pretty much according to the directions for the exercises and I made some scribbled notes to go along with them, mostly. What I’m finding now though is that they don’t really mean that much to me, or I find that I didn’t follow the exercise properly and have to go back and re-do it, or at the very least back track through the exercises again so that they make sense. So much for saving time and making the best of the opportunities available to me – another steep learning curve!
