I am already feeling challenged and stretched - just what I needed. Each week there are many video tutorials and art/drawing assignments, a writing assignment, and a recipe! Even included is a selection of music to create by. Wow.
Week 1 was about drawing with graphite and charcoal for the most part.
Line drawing from a Yearbook photo
Charcoal drawing with shading.
Graphite with shading portrait. I am pretty happy about this one!
Charcoal drawing with a little pastel background. Hard to get good detail in a small space.
Week 2 (this past week) has been about using pastels mainly, though I have only just started on the lesson!
Still a work in progress, but I am liking it so far. I am finding working with pastels similar to paint in that I can layer colors and build them up gradually. Actually quite fun! Still LOTS more to do on this one and many other assignments left to tackle! I'm learning so much!
I love being challenged and really want my art to move into more interpretive pieces, and not so precise and literal. I'll do my best to post more regularly now.
Thanks for reading!
