Then, we were asked to flip the page over, close our eyes and draw again. After we opened our eyes. I picked out an element I liked and repeated it randomly over the page.
From these two drawings, our assignment is to make some snitzels for next week's class.
I took a 2-1/2" window and moved it around until I found areas I thought interesting. Using tracing paper I traced the area. I discovered that I needed to eliminate some of the lines and boil it down to the basics of what made it interesting.
This one is my favorite. I thought this section looked like a face. After the first tracing I realized I needed to leave out a lot of the lines because it was too confusing. I put back in a few of the non-essential lines to add interest.
From the same original drawing, I wanted to make one of the 'eyes' This was the most interesting and defined. I left out some of the unnecessary lines.
I altered it a little bit to make it look more like a chicken. I don't know.... I don't do paintings of chickens!
I should give it a try though.
This will be the last snitzel I do, if I have time.
From the 'Map' drawing, I found four little sections that I like:
This last on is my favorite of these. I'm very excited to begin. This is the one I will do first, since it's a little easier than the face.
Here we go!
The next step is to translate these drawings into snitzels. Stay tuned.
