Any requests for Drawing Group

Postby Harmonygirl » Fri Dec 12, 2008 9:41 am

Hi everyone,

This is a busy time for all of us with the holidays coming. So I am not sure if the first topic was a flop or if everyone is busy....
So I am putting it out there just in case,

What would everyone want to see here?

Throw anything at me... what would you like to see.

Keep drawing,

shannon

Hey Shannon, from what I saw so far, something simple, but fun or something that captures imagination worked best. People won't spend a lot of time on it. This for the beginning. Once you have a small group you can move on to bigger, better things.

I loved your idea, but it requires a little more time. From my experience it's not easy to make people do any kind of contribution lol, but your enthusiasm and perseverence should pay off in the long run.

Here is a suggestion from a drawing exercise while in community college... it's fun and challenging too :shock:

Take a good black & white photo {color if you prefer} then cut out a 2x2 or 3x3 section out. Paste the remaining image onto a high quality drawing paper and try to duplicate as closely as possible the removed section. Get down to the nitty-gritty and try to make the image seamless if you can. Work from a photocopy image so you don't have to contend with gloss of the original.

You will be amazed at how much your observational skills will improve 8)

the best.... Bruce

That is a awesome exercise. I think I will save that one for the new year though. the next few weeks I am thinking that folks will be busy with other things and may not be able to commit to time, and I don't want to waste this puppy. Thanks for the idea......

I may just try that myself first..... :wink:

Thanks Bruce

I remember doing something like that in highschool. Everybody got a small part of the photograph to draw on a larger piece of paper. The really cool thing was everybody got to choose their own media. It turned out great, they put all the pieces together on the wall in the entrance.

Self portraits

Postby tseyigai » Sun Jan 04, 2009 1:42 pm

Hey, how about doing self portraits in pencil or any other medium that one may be interested in? I think that doing these proves to be helpful in developing one's ability to do other portraits and you can get familiar with contour, composition, proportions, and the like.

thanks,

new idea

Postby Jeanette » Sun Jan 04, 2009 7:59 pm

Since I'm a new member, I'm hesitant to suggest, but how about a "one line drawing", where you don't lift the pencil from the paper, to create a drawing?
You all may have already done this, that's why I was hesitant...
Another thought..In the Kitchen...stuff in your kitchen?..
Musical instruments?
Glass objects
Our work area (where we create our Art, a kind of self portrait) with or without us in the sketch...
Thanks for "listening!"
