Drawing Course Level 3 – Week 6

Hi folks

I think this weeks lesson was one of the toughest yet.  We focused on lots of different textures, from soft, fluffy teddy bears to rough, jagged rocks and we had to think carefully about the marks and tones we could use to portray those textures on paper.  You all made a fantastic job of it too!  I could not ask for more effort or concentration from you all.  Thank you so much for all your hard work each week.  One more lesson to go and then we break for our summer hols.

See you all next week.

Drawing Course Level 3 – Week 5

Hi Everyone

Our focus for this week was negative space.  This meant looking carefully at all the spaces between things that often get forgotten in a drawing.  Having to draw the faces behind the leaves was a real test of how accurately you had drawn your negative spaces but you all did really well and are continuing to impress me every week with how well you handle all the tasks I give you.  Great work everyone!  We have 2 more weeks left of lessons before we break up but if you would like to see what courses will be running from September then go to the “Courses for 2017” page where you will find all the details and how to book a place.  There will be a brand new course starting in September – “Beginners Drawing From Nature Course”.  If you have any questions about the courses or if you would like to book a place then please get in touch by phone: 07788 871286 or email: leedsartgroup@yahoo.co.uk.

See you all next week.

Drawing Course Level 3 – Week 4

Hi folks

This week we focused on proportion and it was great to see how you all got stuck in right from the start and really considered and compared all those spaces and distances.  It definitely paid off as you all produced drawings with accurate proportion.  Fantastic work!  I hope you’re all pleased with your progress so far – you’re doing great!

See you all next week.

Drawing Course Level 3 – Week 3

Hi Everyone

This week we looked at perspective and how understanding the basic principles can help us to create the impression of 3 dimensional objects on our 2 dimensional paper.  Just like last week, you really had to think about this one as it can get really confusing with all those lines meeting at the vanishing points.  You all did great though and I was very impressed with how well you all picked it up.  Sorry, there aren’t any photos from this week (silly me forgot to take any) but if anyone wants to email me a photo of what we did in class then I will post it on here.  We’ll be working on proportion next week, so don’t forget your small objects to draw.

See you soon.

Wendy
