Tags: Foundations, Charcol on watercolor, 22″ x 30″, Shading
I have never done as much drawing before taking Foundations at Alfred State. Before this class, I haven’t been that great of an artist, without having a refrence to draw from. I took one art class in my junior year, but I had to be recommeded to take a higher level art class.
The first couple of still life drawings were very difficult for me to draw because it was a big change from drawing flat on a table to drawing on an easel. The more I drew thoughout my time in this class, I began to develop a better sense of depth and prespective while drawing still lifes. I diffinitly improved than from before.
I took what I learned from the earlier assignments and put them to use to draw the chair. The easier part was to draw out the the shape and demensions, what was harder was to put shading into the chair and make it more realistic. But the techniques I learned over the course of the semester helped achive a better artist view of the chair and draw it better.
