I used similar techniques and colours to make them into a little set.
Alright, so now I will be brave and share my drawing attempts with you also, all of them were done just with an HB and B2 pencil mostly.
This was a pre-instruction drawing of my hand that you are asked to do, to see how you will improve by following the exercises in the book.
My hand again, this time against a tinted background. I used the wrong stuff, so it turned into a mess when I was rubbing out mistakes. This one was done with a view finder and one eye closed (tricky I tell you).....
A drawing of a chair, again using a viewfinder, one eye closed and trying to see the negative space. There are no perspective techniques here, you are just supposed to draw what you see by looking at the spaces around and between the actual object. It probably looks easy, but it is super hard I tell you, I struggled like anything with this one, oh and by the way, the cushion really did look like that.
This is the last drawing I have done so far and by far the trickiest. It's a copy of a drawing by Winslow Homer and the exercise again was to copy the negative spaces. It took me at least two hours to do this one...
Well, that's it for now, thank you for baring with me and I hope you are having a good week!
