We actually did some pre-sketching exercises - five sketches of an empty yogurt container (without lid) moving it closer with each sketch.
Here is a quick look...the object was to get the relation of the opening to the curvature of the base and the height of the sides...hmmm…needs work, but hey, that’s why I’m taking this course, right!
In these two sketches the container was literally to my right, inches away. I’ll be practicing this during the week to get the hang of it before next class.
Then came the sketching/drawing session (I left early so I only did one drawing - parental unit issues). Here is what I saw (although I saw a little more of the shoes heel area than this pic affords a view of).
Here’s my great attempt...okay, it’s week three and I’m feeling the love! As you can see I am still "stretching" the truth!
Now, here is my last (don’t want to bore you to death) drawing of the curtain and drawer combo.
The drawing on the right is my most recent and per the suggestion of a wise blogger I am laying this project aside. Time to sketch bigger fish! (and I have just the thing; wait till you see it)
Then, just for fun, I had to add a shot of my cleverness.
Since I was unable to procure a newsprint tube from the art supply shop I frequent (a one man store; I’m huge on supporting the “little people” seeings as I’m one of them) I got creative.
A while back, I purchased a painting from Artist Trish, Down Under, and it arrived in a mailing tube - so voila, it’s now my newsprint tube; it even has her trademark lizard on it, therefore my tube is a “work of art”. Slick, eh!
Before I sign off...there’s a little housekeeping that needs attending to.
Matthew - THANK YOU for adding my blog to your Thursday Top Three - what a surprise and honour. Too cool for words! So, simply put - YOU ROCK!
Mynx - you aced your homework assignment - and "rock it out of the ball park" you did! High Fives to you my friend! All six are awesome - you know my fav!
And to a special friend, who’s going through a rough patch...this too shall pass. Consider yourself hugged, tightly.
And you...do you dream big; do you live in the present; do you breathing in deeply while hugging tightly; do you love passionately and laugh heartily?
Well? Do you?
