Drawing - Lesson 1

Yesterday was our first day of drawing and we had to, firstly, draw the installation using charcoal (above). I'm quite happy with this as it shows my rough style that I have when using charcoal. I didn't try to make it the right size or completely exact, but the result I got looks good, with it jagged lines and bits of tone. We then had to draw the negative spaces (below), and as I didn't quite know what to do, I just drew the shapes that were made by the installation. Although, Vicky seemed to like it, I do not. I can't think of an exact reason for not liking it, I just don't think it looks good or anything like that.


  1. where's the third drawing, Dan? The one you worked into much more - Vicky showed it too me after class, and I really liked it - get it on here for the whole world to see!

  2. Hi there,

    It's really important that first years a) follow the group blog as a matter of habit and b) follow the blogs of year 2 and year 3 students, because we know that, by doing so, year 1 students develop more quickly and get more organised. You might have done all this already, but I know there are those who have not, and I'm keen to get everyone up to speed.

    If you haven't done so already, you need to add these to your Blogger reading list, by clicking on the 'ADD' button on your dashboard, pasting in the URLs and then 'following pubically'.

    Group Blog (You must be following this/checking this feed daily at least).
