|Locating and drawing a fork in space|
|Time:||Allow 40 minutes|
|Aim:||To apply in revese the principles learned in our previous lesson to drawing objects that have more complicated three dimensional shapes.|
|Materials:||The sketch pad, HB and 4B pencil, eraser, a ruler if need be.|
Prepare the sheet as usual then using the prepared top and side view of the common fork draw a box of appropiate dimensions as shown.
On the top surface draw a 'flat' top view of the fork.
Draw a side view on the front right hand surface as show.
If we now project light lines 'in' from the front view and 'down' from the top we can locate as many points as we like on the edge of our fork ('a' and 'b').
Join all these points up with nice smooth freehand curves as shown.
complete as shown above taking care with the prongs.
Now let us give our fork a little 'thickness' using a little shading on the front edge.
Shade the rest of the fork and add a shadow where appropiate. If you have a fork with you on the desk you can adjust the shadow as you see it.
|Homework:||Refine the drawing and add a knife.|
