- I used a variety of objects in my drawings with different textures, shapes, forms, etc.
- I don't draw a predictable merry-go-round composition (its when the subjects are arranged in a circular pattern; it makes for a very boring composition). Instead, I create a composition that covers the entire picture plane, has variety of rhythm and objects, and engages the viewer to explore the artwork.
- I can see how lines around and within the objects (contour and cross-contour lines) bend around the objects form.
- And I used the theory of chiaroscuro to understand how light and shadows act on objects.
- I need to vary my line weight ( which lines define a sudden change in space, the shape of the object, which areas bulge or recede in space, etc.)
- I need to create accurate and symmetrical ellipses.
Anyway, I wish the camera works so I can show you some sketches tonight, so here's a picture of clovers instead:
|Right from the backyard. Beautiful too.|
