Contemporary Realistic Drawing
Blog Week 5
So far when we’ve been applying tone, we have been building it up, making areas darker. For the swift warm up this evening, we instead focused on the areas of light and drew with an eraser.
Then, continuing with exploring the advantages of pointillism in creating realistic drawings and textures, we attempted to replicate the effect of stainless steel of a coffee pot. Initially unsure that it was going to work, the shiny surface began to reveal itself and a three-dimensional coffee pot emerged. The key, as always, was to go slow and be methodical, but also not to be too heavy handed to allow the white of the paper show through and give effect of a shiny surface. The drawings looked absolutely fabulous!
