Our assignment is to create some Snitzels that demonstrate the concepts we talked about in class about space and perspective. I definitely wanted to do one about perspective.
I came up with a simple drawing of boxes, showing two-point perspective.
I pulled out my solid-colored fabrics and sorted them into color families, trying to find light, medium and dark of colors that worked together. It's always the fabric that holds me back! (And I thought I had a HUGE fabric stash!). I quickly realized that for most of the boxes I only need two colors. That made it so much easier!
Here's my first rendition: After I got the boxes up, I noticed the 'hole'. It was to small for another box, so I'll try sticking a sphere there or something.
I'm using a photo of raindrops on a camera lens cover to make this next one. I found it very difficult to made a gradation from dark to light. In real life, the gradation is gradual. It's hard to do that with just fabric. On a few of them I tried shading the fabric with a colored pencil. Is that cheating? It worked well, but will it stay on there in the long run? Will it fade or discolor? Who knows.
I've got a long ways to go on this one. It will go to class pretty much like this though. We'll see what everyone thinks.
