Winter break session from school. I decided to work on the critiques I received during fall semester. I know that the main one was my drawing techniques; measuring and proportions. From still life setups to figure drawings. So, practicing this will improve my skills for my spring class. I am scheduled for Chiaroscuro, Color Theory and Art History ( Art & Culture.
My first drawing; a still life figure sculpture I set up in my home art studio. Using a large black foam board as the background and a light grey linen cloth for the table cover. I used one light source and rendered all the shading in my pitch black studio w/ the one light source at a 45 degree angle on the sculpture.
I did send my drawing as a private message after semester to my instructor and she recommended for accuracy to the still life my drawing such be taller. So for my next study I will focus even more on the height and weigh measurements. I did take my time with this assignment to focus on not shading the reflected light value too light and I believe I did way better than all last semester assignments. Medium used Nitram Charcoal and General charcoal for all values instead of the pearl where I used Luminance Colored Pencil in Black and White. Next, I will be working on a oil painting using limited color palette; terra rosa, yellow orchre, white, black mostly.
