Part One: Line, Ex. 1.4

Final Drawing Selection

I spent a great deal of time preparing for this exercise, perhaps over-thinking it ?!

I decided on one object/drawing, linked by a feeling of action & emotion, as well as use of line only for the object, but color for any additional items. Here are the six results, in order of preference:

Ex 1.4 Black & White ink, white charcoal, watercolor

Ex 1.4, Angry Whisk
Black & White ink, white charcoal, watercolor

 

 

 

Ex 1.4 Charcoal, oil pastel, watercolor

Ex 1.4, Agitated reamer
Charcoal, oil pastel, watercolor

 

Ex 1.4 Black ink, white charcoal, oil pastel

Ex 1.4, Playful spoons
Black ink, white charcoal, oil pastel

 

Ex 1.4 Charcoal, oil pastel

Ex 1.4, Tired grater
Charcoal, oil pastel

 

Ex 1.4 Charcoal, graphite, oil pastel

Ex 1.4, Celebratory sieve
Charcoal, graphite, oil pastel

 

Ex 1.4 Charcoal, oil pastel, watercolor

Ex 1.4, Defeated cup
Charcoal, oil pastel, watercolor

I like the first three drawings, but the last three are a bit disappointing.

The idea for using mood in the pictures came from the blind drawings that looked almost personified. I used many of the techniques tried earlier, such blind drawing and continuous line, in executing the pieces.

I felt I made better observations than I might have previously, such as understanding the perspective shift when changing an object’s actual shape.

I enjoyed a chance to be a bit more creative with line, and adding other media and color.
