This is week #6, the last week of Jane LaFazio's online art class for beginners,
This last week we sketched and painted man-made objects, and learned to use an outstretched pencil as a measuring device for creating an accurate drawing. My first drawing was very challenging, as I chose 3 objects not in a line, so I had to calculate their relative positions and sizes.
The whole drawing and painting took me about 4 hours, as it was a first time effort doing this sort of thing. In retrospect, I should have started more simply, but I like to jump in with both feet and try hard, as that is how you learn anything. If it is easy, you are not learning.
My second drawing, following on the alcohol themed drawings of the rest of the class, was of a brandy bottle. Much easier as it is a single object.
(See my Daily Drawings page for all my paintings.)
This course has been an excellent experience, and I have already signed up for her next class, beginning February 1, 2015 -
