Now, lets try a similar experiment with Egon Schiele, who I have less exposure of. Again, I’ll start by looking at some images:Continue reading “Linking to Egon Schiele”
On of the challenges that I have is that of considering artistic style and approach. One challenge my tutor left me with is to:
“Link your work to that of others and make it clearPart 3 Formative feedback
that this is what you’re doing”
So, lets start by considering one artist whose figurative work I admire – Maggi Hambling. To start, lets examine a number of her figurative drawings that I like:Continue reading “An experiment linking to artists”
Exercise 1 Drawing fabric using line and tone
Started with some initial experiments, of which the following were the most interesting:
In the first I was trying to use quite heavy blocks of tone in conte to try to get the impression of the scene. I used a grey sugar paper with black and white conte for mark making. Although it wasn’t that successful it did get me started in thinking how to approach the exercise. In the second I started with a pencil sketch, and then was trying to over draw with a fineliner. It was heading in an interesting direction, but needed more thought as an approach. Continue reading “Project 1 Fabric and form”
Reworked following Part 2 feedback. I’ve also added notes that I previously thought I’d included but now can’t find. Unfortunately the original wording is lost, so I’ve recreated it from memory.
Sketches around the house
Started to draw a rock on a wooden base with shadows as dip pen practice. This approach was suggested as an alternative to fineliner by my tutor. In some ways it was being successful, as the mark making is generating an interesting approach. It was also, however, being very time consuming and wouldn’t have produced a good final image.
A quick Google Search (https://www.google.co.uk/search?odilon+redon+tonal+drawings) on Odilon and his Noirs (the name he uses for his tonal drawings) quickly brings a wealth of information. This can be further elaborated by wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Odilon_Redon Continue reading “Odilon Redon’s tonal drawings”
