Homework for week 2…due Tuesday Sept. 2nd

contour-tools

For this week I would like you to choose a tool or other interesting object to draw from life in your sketchbook. Focus on the contour of the object to describe the form of what you see. Remember in contour drawing,you follow the edge of objects slowly as if you were touching them with your pencil to record all of the details that you see. Just about any object could make an interesting subject like a baseball glove, fishing reel, a cooking implement like a whisk, or a pair of binoculars. Choose something you find interesting and have fun exploring it in your drawing. Please label in the lower right corner with a circled 2.

Here is a link to a short video on contour line drawings similar to what you worked on in class this week.
