Observational Drawing

I think compressed charcoal and pastels might be my new favourite things to work with.

Just something from last Thursday’s class. We were asked to bring in a white object to draw. The only white things I own are my white hi-tops. We were then asked to draw three of the objects in one picture. That white sphere was a foam ball. As you can see I didn’t really enjoy drawing it.

The stuffed rabbit and the shoe have quite a bit of life to them, I’m really happy with how they look. That ball, not so much, it didn’t seem to matter what I did it just didn’t look right. Sonia, my teacher, even suggested I get rid of it because it just doesn’t work.
