Art classes: week 2

This week, we focused on line—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.

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

Heart cup, headphones, jug

Some more negative-space practice. Again, I used my pencil to assess the angles and proportions. I’m pretty happy with these.

Note: The headphones were lying down on the table just in front of me.

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. 🙂
