To help warm up Drawing and Painting and Art Portfolio students, we recently created quick, two-class length drawings of apples. This was an exercise in patience and careful observation. This drawing assignment challenged students to look closely at apples.
Beyond the obvious noticeable colors – red, green and yellow, they also discovered many subtle colors found in the highlights, midtones and shadows. By patiently overlaying colors, the unique features of the apples in their particular angle have come through. This quick exercise will help us ramp up for a more detailed, complex unit on still life drawing. Stay tuned!
