Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Mike -
You're off to a good start .

Two observations:
-- I get the impression that you use the pencil exclusively as a pen, in writing grip. I strongly advice to try both writing and underhand positions, and in long strokes in different directions. Try out which direction feels the most natural, so you can turn the paper that way if you need to fill a shape in regular strokes.

-- perspective is for next class, please don't mix up. That said, a vanishing point is a property of a set of receding horizontal lines. Talking of a VP in your sketch is out of context .

Keep up the good work

The right context is class 2.
Joking .
Seriously, the VP is where vanishing lines come together. In your sketch there are no VL's - because there are no receding parallel lines.

Please move on to class 2 .

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Hi Arnoud,

Here are my exercises for Lesson 1.

For me, the easiest lines to draw were the ones starting at the bottom left and angling up to the top right, which I think is probably normal for a right-handed person; in the future, I'll make sure I turn the paper when I need to draw long, straight(ish) lines.

I liked the underhand grip--it felt steadier somehow, but I didn't notice that the lines looked much different than the ones written with the tripod grip.

I really don't have much of a clue about cross-hatching to make objects look 3-dimensional, but I think that will be covered in a later lesson!

Best wishes,

Carole

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Very well done, Carole .
3D look: yes, it struck me that your pre-class drawing was rather flat. But we will see to it .
Please move on to class 2 .

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Ok I have purchased the book and read the first two chapters. I have most of the basic materials and posted my pre-class drawing. Attached are assignments for lesson 1. Looking forward to more learning! I know my chair has some perspective issues - the seat should appear more shallow - but can only improve from here, right? I tried both the underhand and the regular writing position, I think it depends on what I might be drawing as to which I prefer.

DivotDiva - Well done .
Here you can find some additional illustration of the different pencil holding positions and their application.

Please move on to class 2 .

Re: Basic 101: Class1 - Drawing Basics

Here is my first lesson of 3 pictures.

The circles, the lines and the chair hope you like them.
At the moment I will only be using photo copy paper until I get better. Then I will be pinching my Husbands (tonybbc).
