Beginners Drawing Course – Week 3

We used charcoal and chalk this week to draw natural forms and used a viewfinder to help enlarge the small objects to fill a sheet of A3 paper.  Both charcoal and chalk take some getting used to, so well done to everyone for having a go, I was really pleased with the work you did.  Back to good old pencil work next week and we’ll be drawing from photographs.  I have plenty of photos for everyone but if you’d like to bring in your own then please do (it needs to be about A5 size).  See you all next week!

Beginners Pastel Drawing Course – Week 3

Well it was a tricky one this week – drawing white objects on a white background without using any black.  Not an easy task but you all experimented really well with colour and found out what colours to mix to create the shadows you needed.  Then you looked at the tints reflected onto white by other bright objects.  You did some fantastic drawings and I just wish we’d had more time to spend on them.  Find out next week what we’ll be doing with the textured surface we prepared.
