I took a drawing class last semester (Fall 2016). I had never taken n art class before and it seemed like a fun 3 credit class. Here are my projects through out the semester.
ABOVE: Hand and Foot drawings were the homework for the first day of class.
*The little finger on the hand is not a mistake
ABOVE: Figure Sketch practice on my own...
I did name the piece... I called it A Bird in the Hand is Worth a Baby in the Mouth
The project was a Day of the Dead painting for an exhibit.
ABOVE: The second to last project was a portrait using something other than paper. What we chose had to have texture as well. So I painted a piece of wood with acrylic paints. We were also told it didn't have to be realistic. It also had to create a mood with the colour, shading and texture.
ABOVE: The finished piece. I glued on some gears as well. I also glued an arrow on that looked a bit like clock hands (I wasn't able to find actual clock hands). This, since I had time to really focus on it, unlike the last painting, is what I consider my first acrylic painting. I was able to experiment and see what worked and what didn't. It was a learning experience and I actually really enjoyed it. The colours are more vivid in person but I wasn't able to get a decent photo... I ended up giving it to my husband. It's sitting in the corner of the basement. I don't think it's ever going to be hung up but that's fine.
And that is everything from my drawing class. I wont be taking any more since my degree isn't in visual art. However, I am glad I took one.
