Negative-space chair

Negative-space chair

This was today’s attempt at capturing the negative space of an object. Although the proportions aren’t exactly right, I’m much happier with how it came out than my attempt the other night. I used my pencil (in the same way that I used the kebab stick) to assess the proportions and angles too. It felt slightly less awkward, and slightly more helpful, this time. I guess it’s just practice—and feeling a bit more relaxed with nobody around. 🙂

Art classes: week 1

I went to my first ever art class on Wednesday night. I was nervous, but then, everyone else in the room (14 other students) probably was too. We’re just about all beginners.

I’m away from my paints at the moment, so I’m just doing sketches. I did this one on a Bockingford Sketch Pad. I found the texture a little bit off-putting, but maybe I’ll grow to like it. Possibly I need to try a different (harder) pencil.
