Still Life Studies









Purpose:

    • To demonstrate understanding of accurate perspective of cylinders and cubes;
    • To demonstrate the value changes on forms, helping them appear 3D
    • To practice using a variety of media to draw a still life

Artists Studied: Henry Moore, Vincent van Gogh, Winslow Homer, Giorgio Morandi, John Whalley

I think that I’m generally doing okay with the proportion of the objects in my drawings. Most of the time they match up, size-wise, in a similar way to how they did in real life. Also, I’m doing better with mark-making than I originally thought I would be. You can usually tell what kinds of marks I used on a drawing when looking at it.
I have gotten a little better at shading, but it’s still something I need to work on, especially when the drawing is in ink and I can’t erase. I’m a bit better at shadows on the ground than shadows on the objects themselves. Also, I need to work on angles a bit more. Objects that overlap or disappear behind each other can be difficult for me sometimes.
I’m not completely sure yet what medium I want to do for my final drawing. I think maybe the black and white colored pencils. I got some of the angles wrong on the drawing I did using the pencils so I didn’t submit it as my best, but I think it looked okay except for that. Having a white pencil to make the light areas in the drawing was useful when it came to shading.
