Last Monday I had my first drawing session with an architect and artist Brian. His sessions will occur every Monday morning to allow us to experiment with shapes and drawing still life to create accurate pieces. The first session we practised simple line marking and ellipses. We had to draw standing up to use your whole arm to create movement and lines, I found this technique good to produce sketches. I have some examples of my work showing line work and shading.
We learnt about space, the positive and negative space surrounding a drawing. This was shown through drawing a composition of a fruit bowl and looking at the size and pitch to recreate the same image further down the page. I have used pencil and Biro to experiment these as you are able to capture various textures and gradients.
