Study #4 - Charcoal Pencil and Vine - White Stork, Faux Log, Nuts - September 2, 2011
Our second week we've continued to work on using charcoal and now instead of single studies we've been working on compositions. The entire week was used to work on one large 18 x 24 composition, filling the entire, or close to the entire, page. Where we sat determined what part of the composition we could see. Of what I could see, this was part I chose to sketch - a wooden stork, a small branch of some nut like things, all set on the backdrop of a large faux log. The background was to be filled in with black. I finished early on Friday and used the rest of class to practice on the pine cone and little squash in the composition. My pinecone looks squashed, lol, but I think my mini pumpkin gourd thing came out pretty well ;)
Practice - Charcoal Pencil and Vine - Pinecone and Mini Gourd - September 2, 2011
The sketchbook assignment was to do mini compositions in our 9 x 11 book. Put together two items. We could do more, but no more than 3. I had a ton of fun with my projects and tried to pick out items that could tell a story of sorts, so a lot of toys were used in my sketches this week. The first one I want to add the quote to Vader, "Now you belong to me" and have a little "mew?" caption above the LPS kitten ears. The second is Apple's velociraptor playing the xbox. I have it on good authority that he was playing Lego Harry Potter ;) And last is the rainbow My Little Pony wearing 3D glasses. These were all both fun and frustrating, lol. They definitely taught me a lot!
