one point

The one point drawing was my favorite drawing this year. It was very difficult and challenging to draw.  This was a drawing that you could not be lazy on.  I felt like I did a decent job, but I was rushed in the end so I could not detail as well.  The angles took a while to do, but when I finally got the hang of it, it was much easier to do.  Doing this drawing, I realized that your eyes have to see things that make drawings great.  I really though what made it so hard to draw was the pictures on the wall.  When I was drawing the book shelf, it took me a while to figure it out.  This was a great learning experience for me.  I wish we had a little more time on it because I think I could have done a better job on the detailing and shading.

Pen and Ink Drawings

The pen and ink drawing was my favorite project this year. I have never used pen and ink before so this was a new experience for me. I thought the gridding is a very helpful and useful style.  As I went farther into my ink drawing, I became better at it.  I think if u did this again it would be better because now I have used the quill.  I think that the grass was very difficult for me.  I think the roof came out good, but I think I could have spent a little more time on it.  The artist that made the original pen and ink must have been very experienced because there were no splatters. Pen and ink is much different than any other medium than I have used and I hope that I can use it again because it is a great medium for my artwork.

leaf drawing post

When I began drawing this I realized how difficult it was to draw a leaf. A leaf is very difficult because of the stem; it seemed to be lighter than anything other than leaf.  As I continued to draw it, I realized the shading was a lot very difficult.  Doing this over a period of 3 days changed the leaf and made it more difficult. I thought the toughest part of the leaf, besides the stem, was the outer edge. I tried to make the outline of the leaf that I made at the beginning of the sketch go away with shading, but the more I did it, the more awkward it looked. I really hope we do this project again because it was very fun and I learned a lot on how to draw a leaf. Hopefully the next time we do this, I will do better with my new experience from this project.
