During class today, the students reviewed some basic drawing techniques which, when combined, helps us achieve accurate observational drawings.

The Task

We began with some quick figure gestures followed with: blind, contour, negative shape, kinesthetic and observational drawing skills. These all help us to REALLY see.

The final task today, was to draw a shoe four times whilst applying what we have learnt. The students had to demonstrate their understanding of: blind, contour, and kinesthetic. Then they combined all techniques in a final detailed shoe drawing. Here are some of the results. Well done F1E this is a great start. Next class will be upside down drawing and grids.
