Each month I set a different theme and tasks to help inspire you to draw, paint and create. If you want help just let me know.
WHAT: March Inspiration – Darkness and Light
TASK 1) This month we focus on looking at working with shadow and light in our drawing
Exercise 1: 5 minute draw: 1 minute only highlights, 1 minute only darkest shadows, and 3 minutes bringing the sketch together.
Excercise 2: Use a lamp to highlight a still life and do quick studies only drawing the light.
TASK 2). Visit an exhibition to inspire you (and tell us about it!)
* Think about using different types of marks, (squiggles, scratching, cross hatch etc.), pressing hard and soft and holding the tool in different ways.
