BIG drawings

This week’s drawing challenge was to take a detail from the small drawings of last week, and then to draw this detail on a piece of A2  ( I think!) paper, using a variety of marks, with either charcoal or graphite stick.  Gosh this was difficult.

First effort


Second effort


3rd effort


Interestingly enough, the tutor thought the first one was the best, but I liked the third one most.


Glorious tomatoes bought this weekend.

Return to drawing

With all that difficulty in discerning positive and negative space in my last post, it is just as well that I have returned to a drawing course at the Mary Ward Centre.  As ever, one of my personal learning objectives is " to draw every day".  In that spirit, here are this week's efforts.

Fish vertebra

Shoes and shapes

Cow parsley stalks

It is so infuriating that I can't rotate these photos.
