Working on Still life--Still

Making progress on the still life drawings of 3 red pears.

We worked last week on thumbnails and the idea of creating the layouts there first. Thumbnails are a good way to work out problems in artwork. You can make sure of your design. Also, you can discover what is going to give you trouble in the larger work, and work out solutions. This is a way to "audition" your objects.

You can also work to isolate and identify both the basic shapes and what is important in the design.

Basic layouts and sketching are blocked in, and we are working on the base layers. Some are working in colored pencil others in graphite
We all started with the same 3 red pears, but each layout is different as each artist finds what is important to them.
