A record of my 14 days of drawing
Reflection: V. quick drawing for this one... need to buy more pens I think and spend a bit longer but nice way to loosen up
Day 2: Cloud watching
Reflection: I really enjoyed this exercise, it isn't something I have done before, similar to the first day I think spending more time would be good for me... I think I will return to this method in the future though
DAY 3: SLOW
Today I experimented with a chalk pastel and went slooow. I've never really understood why pastels are square, I think it makes it difficult to make precise lines but I am also very out of practice.
Day 4: Fast
I decided to limit myself to two colours today and go for something abstract. I really was just making marks and playing around. I think the limited palette helps to ground the drawing and not make it seem too random.
Day 5: metamorphosis 01
This was a mixed media piece that was trying to use negative space. I think in general I want to prectice my figure drawing. I like to draw from imagination for these practices but I think some practices with figures and proportion would give my imagined figures more realism.
Day 6: metamorphosis 02
If my first drawing was huddled up then this one is an explosion. I enjoyed trying to fill the page also. Again my figures need work
Day 7: creatures
Another day, another media experiment. This time with black ink, I've not used this much before so I really was getting the feel for it. Perhaps some watercolour paper is needed and I would like to try using ink to draw from life.
Day 8: Colour
So I bought some new pencils... they were super cheap... I think you can tell haha. maybe not the best medium to showcase colour... going to come up with a use for them though
Day 9 - Flatten it out
This was such a fun exercise. I tried to create a face by breaking it into flat shapes. This is potentially a better submission for colour!
Day 10 - Thread
This was a one line drawing... got some new fine liners, really like using them
Day 11 - Transform
I built upon my cloudwatching drawing trying to develop the surroundings of the dancers - bit of a quick exercise today
Day 12 - Structure
I enjoyed creating this scene. I started from the main tower structure and worked outwards. very fun exercise
Day 13 - Take 2
Combo of day 5 and day 7, ink, pen and watercolour
Day 14 - Texture
This one is a bit abstract, not my favourite but I enjoyed using ink again.
