Beginners Drawing Course 2 – Week 3

Well done everyone!  I gave you a pretty difficult task this week and you all tackled it head on.  We made some observation drawings of pine cones and looked at how you can take a complex object and break it down into simpler shapes, then build it up gradually.  I know it was a tough exercise and you all did amazingly well.  If you are producing this level of work and it’s only week three, just think how good you’ll be by week 8!  Next week we’ll be trying something a bit different.

See you soon.

Beginners Drawing Course 2 – Week 2

This week we continued to build on our basic drawing skills and perfect our shading technique.  We made observation drawings from a photograph and concentrated (really hard) on making sure everything was accurate.  You all worked so well this week and I could see that many of you were ironing out any problems that can occur with shading.  Next week we’re going to develop your observation skills even further.

See you all next week

Beginners Drawing Course 2 – Week 1

Welcome back everyone!

The start of the new summer term and it’s great to see everyone so enthusiastic and eager to learn.  We went back to basics for the first lesson and looked at how to construct simple shapes.  We then used those shapes to build up a picture and used shading to make the objects appear 3 dimensional.  You all did really well in your first lesson, I hope you enjoyed it.  Next week we’ll be building on those skills and practising shading techniques.  Don’t forget to look on our Membership Discounts page to see what offers you can get with your Leeds Art Group membership card.  Remember, if you’d like to get automatic updates every time a new post is added to this website, just click on the “Follow” tab in the bottom right corner of the screen and enter your email address.
