Art classes: week 7

Wow. A lot’s happened in the last week. Like many other countries, New Zealand is now in lockdown. It feels surreal and disconcerting. But I don’t want to focus on COVID-19. We’re all already feeling overwhelmed with the implications and the torrent of media reports. All I want to say is, I hope you’re OK.

For last week’s art class, on Wednesday the 18th, we returned to drawing and learnt about perspective.

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.
