Art classes: week 3

I started this at our class last Wednesday, and then took a few more days to finish it at home.

The focus was tone, and we used this James Casebere photograph as our reference.

Art classes: week 2

This week, we focused on lineā€”and drew with willow charcoal, which I really enjoyed. It was also the first time I’d drawn on an easel and in such a large format (A1).

The subject of all of the drawings below was a complex still life in the middle of the room made up of a chair, a stool, vases (on different-sized and shaped blocks), bottles, and a suspended frame and tennis racket.

More emotion marks and negative-space drawings

More practice for my art class. I attempted making marks for a different set of emotions this time.

Emotion marks
Left to right, top to bottom: confusion, disgust, adoration, horror, awe, triumph, fear, excitement

More materials for art class

Art materials

I bought the rest of the materials for my art class today. Not cheap, even when you buy the “affordable” stuff, but I’m all set now. I’m looking forward to trying charcoal drawing, and I’m happy to finally have a palette knife. (No more misshaping my round brush by mixing paint with it!)
