Realistic Drawing Blog - Week 2
Back to the drawing board! (I might just make that joke every week… sorry).
Continuing on with the techniques we learnt last week, with the ‘softly softly’ approach to draw shapes and apply areas of tonal variation seen in the subject, which this week again was scrap paper (anything can be beautiful!).
This week we had the added fun of attempting to achieve accurate scale by measuring the subject. This, in itself is an art, and takes time to master.
It’s so satisfying for me and for the students to see progress so early on, and not just with their drawing skills, but their ‘looking’ skills – knowing why things might not look right, or differentiating between subtle variations in tone.
