Set painting and scenic art introduction

After exploring various pathways and aspects within Production Design and where I can take the skills I am acquiring through my studies, I have decided that one of the paths that interests me the most is scenic artwork and scenic effect painting – as well as the main set used, as this is something you need to look at overall to be able to understand the effect painting used to create it. In order to find out whether I want to pursue this area, I am going to research more what a job as a scenic artist entails and what skills would be needed such as texture painting, technical drawing etc. I will also be looking at artists, designers and companies that create sets and the artwork that covers them, for film and theatre and other parts of the entertainment industry. This will help me narrow down my area of interest for Professional Studies, the rest of University and for my future career.
