Basic Observational Drawing with Graphite
Knowing the fundamental methods of observational drawing is an important tool for successfully and accurately depicting a subject. Using graphite, you will explore the elements of drawing through mark making, line, shape, texture and volume. We’ll study basic perspective, work towards understanding positive and negative space and understand how light and shade is applied on various forms and surfaces. This course is for people who are new to drawing or who want to work on improving their basic observational drawing skills.
