For this third week, by special request, I would like you choose a mythical creature to draw in your sketchbook. You can look for one that inspires you, or better yet, invent your own. Have fun and do your best!
For this week we are working from a still life to create a composition that incorporates color using watercolors. Fill your composition with shapes and see if you can mix the warm and cool colors that you perceive. Have fun and do your best! For those of you at home you can use these photographs to see the still life we were using in the classroom. You can zoom in on a part of the still life to create your composition.
Here is a zoom in close up of part of the still life:
For this week I would like you to focus on depicting volume by using Value or light and shade in your composition.
For this first homework assignment I would like you to set up a still life with some toys to create an interesting composition in your sketchbook. Concentrate on the Countours and then add Value to create volume. Have fun and do your best!
For today I would like you to draw this image in your sketchbook with a pencil. Try to start at the top of the page and include every line that you see. Don’t worry about what the image is, just copy the lines you see, how it curves or angles this way and that. Pretend that the box is the edge of your sketchbook page and fill the complete page.
