8 Objects 8 Ways
A few weeks back I took an art class with Jane LaFazio called "8 Objects 8 Ways" in San Diego, CA. The class was held at the studio Art on 30th. This class was so much fun and I learned a lot in the process.
#1 was to draw an object using just a pencil. You can see my poor attempt at drawing a sea shell. I chose this because I thought it would be the easiest, but it turned out it was the hardest.
#2 were the berries. We drew it in pencil first and then went over it with a water soluble pencil. Then we went back in with a waterbrush and lightly shaded. I thought those little berries turned out really cute
#3 was the pear. Drew in pencil first, went over it with permanent ink and then watercolored the object. I think I could have done better.
#4 we used pencil only and then watercolor. I think this was my best one one. It looks realistic to me.
#5 was the object in the lower right hand corner. Using a pen only, I did a contour drawing of some sort of a succulent. I don't know what kind it is.
#6 was drawing an image on a book page with ink and then watercoloring it in. Once it was dray, we glued it onto our mixed media paper.
#7 is the lower middle section. We did a light wash of color and then drew in another object once the watercolor was was dry. We were suppose to then add additional color to our drawing, but I ran out of time.
#8 was drawing with a tombow maker, which is water soluble, then go over the drawing with a water brush lightly coloring and shading it in.
And there you have it!
