Project 2

Project Description

What type of piece is this? Drawing Share a little about the materials, processes and techniques used to create this piece. Learned a lot on this one, working many hours on it. I probably overworked it as it is only on 14 x 11 sketchbook grade paper. Bad weather (Leave it to me to take a landscape drawing class with winter approaching!) brought me inside where I set up the Albertian Veil with the reference photo taped to it (got the idea from the Lesson 5 demo of the AV and the landscape model. Don't know if this is a valid use of it). Worked with that setup until I could go back outside to the site. I used pencils #4H, 3H, 2H, HB, 2B, 4B, and 6B, trying out clutch pencils + leads for the first time (I really like the sharp point I can get with the special sharpener, which I can't seem to get on regular wooden pencils--I'm no good at using an exacto knife to sharpen those...) As suggested in the lessons, I was trying to use a variety of line-quality differences, gesture, shapes and tone to indicate depth and form. But the trees (especially the arbor vitae at left center), trunk bark, leaves, foreground changes going back and house details were tough for me. The ropes on the hammocks were too hard for me to really get them as well. Time to move on to another drawing :-) ?!
