11/6 – Hand on a Ground

November 6, 2007

First I had to “set a ground” which is smearing a graphite stick all over the page and rubbing it down with a paper towel. Then I drew my hand through a picture plane and copied the major parts of that drawing onto the ground. Then I re-posed my hand as I did in the picture plane, but without using the picture plane, and fine-tuned my drawing. I liked the idea to half-close my eyes to see the shadow and light in the image better, it really did work. Lastly, I lightened the areas around my hand that weren’t in shadow to make it pop from the image of my hand.

11/1 – Pure Contour Drawing

November 1, 2007

“Purpose of the exercise: The aim of this exercise, as with the previous one, is to cause your brain’s language mode to drop out as you draw”. This is a blind drawing of the wrinkles and lines in my left palm.
