Today we tried something new in life drawing- perspective drawing.
I feel like I’m getting worse with life drawing as we progress which sucks and frustrates me because I am doing independent practice. Hmph.
Michael showed us how to manipulate cubes to draw chairs, the follow the horizontal lines to achieve the correct angle for each object. With the chairs alone is was fine- when we introduced a life model I struggled greatly. I just got so flustered with the whole set up and could barely finish one piece. More practice is definitely needed here.
A few of my attempts from this week. Yeah, I’ve had better days.
Michael gave us homework- I know its a word I haven’t heard in a while. He wants us to draw cubes from different view points in mind i.e. above and below the horizon line. Hopefully this will help me a bit!
