I have been to two beginners art class. So far so good, it’s interesting and enjoyable.
I will show some work from the first class.
This exercise was all about ‘Mark Making’. Sorry these drawing are a tad light.
This one is about Basic Shapes and Simple Drawings.
More shapes. I definitely haven’t mastered faces, hands and feet……needing heaps more practise.
We were given a copy of Picasso sketch of Igor Stravinsky. We were asked to draw a graph on the sketch, then draw a graph on a black sheet of paper , then turn them both upside down and create the picture. The tutor said if you cheat and do it the right way up he would know. One student did it both ways and the tutor was able to correctly pick which was which.
This picture is the start of my homework from the second class. It’s about perspective, light, dark, shadows etc. Later today I am going to be sketching trees.
Just did the trees and decided to add some colour. That was all free hand.
