How to Annotate Artwork

Once you have stuck an image or piece of work into your sketchbook follow these 4 simple steps to guarantee the best possible marks for annotation.

1. Say why you have put it in your visual diary. Why do you like/not like it. 

2. Say how you think it can help you to make progress with your project

3. Say how your image links to other images in your project

4. Use technical terms as often as you can, (seeglossary)

5.TALK ABOUT…… the formal elements: (lines, shapes, tones, colours, textures, patterns, in your images)

THINK….. Is there anything in the images images / work that is fascinating or that you are pleased with and can develop further?
