|some for me... some for the littles.|
Coming up with something a little different for my contour drawings I headed back on over to dear ol' Pinterest for some inspiration. I found this artwork (the one with the pepper/oliveoil/garlic) that I added to my "Today's Agenda." I thought... hey! Great idea! Let's combine some contour still life action with our special family recipe!! So... that's what we are going to do.
We first practiced contour drawing in our sketchbooks. Blind continuous of our neighbors... then contour drawings of our shoes (yes, I think that's something that every drawing teacher has done, but they are so cool!) on 12" x 18" paper. In that, they practiced contour drawing, overlapping objects, using compositional techniques, applying line weight. During this week of practice, we continued warm-ups through blind contour. We filled a two-page spread of our hands and the next day filled the negative space with stream of conscious writing, and some shading.

our two day warm-ups.
Here are MY examples... I'll post theirs when they are finished this week!
