Drawing at an art class… (part 1)

So I have just come back from an art class that I go to, and I’d like to share with you what I did there: Well basically, we split the page up into 6 sections and drew a teddy bear that was in front of us. The first one (top to bottom, left to right):…

Drawing Using The Grid Technique.

Here is another post. As most of you probably know, I am currently completing a 3 week drawing course and I thought I’d share with you the work I am doing. These are 2 of my favourite drawings from the 3rd week of the course. This week in the drawing course, we are learning about…

Metaphorical Still Life

Welcome back everyone! This is a still life I have done for the drawing course I am doing. Before I actually drew it, I jotted some ideas down in my sketchbook and planned some thumbnail sketches. After that, I put the objects down on the floor, photographed them in a few different angles, and then…

Plastic Bag Drawing – Evaluation.

I am in the first week of a 4 week online drawing course. This is one of the assignments I did of a plastic bag so that I could practice folds, creases, wrinkles, etc in the context of smooth shading. In the course, one of the tasks was to do an evaluation. Here it is:…

Update: Artwork from holiday.

So I have just come back from holiday again, and you were probably wondering why I haven’t done any posts recently. Have I forgotten about WordPress? Have I simply not done artwork? Well the real answer is that there wasn’t very good internet connection in the caravan to do a full post. I have been…

Mixed media portraiture.

Hello everybody. So today I have been doing some portrait drawings. I got a reference from a YouTube video I watched (the video was about drawing portraits). It doesn’t look like the person on the video, but that’s okay for now. I did this partly in pencil, and partly with a fine liner pen. It…

En Plein Air watercolour painting of the bay.

So, this is the last post of the holiday last weekend. This painting was painted on a big hill, 20 minutes walk or so from the caravan site. After I started painting it, I started to get a bit wet – so I had to abandon ship. But, as we walked down the hill, the…

Drawing the interior of a static caravan!

So before we get started, I would just like to say that I won’t be doing a post everyday. It’s just how this weekend has turned out. Anyway today and yesterday, I have been drawing a picture of the inside of the static caravan that I’m staying in! It didn’t take me too long. I…
