We were asked to bring an A3 layout pad to do some practical work in during the lesson. The tutor had a presentation slideshow with images of the sort of tasks we would be doing and did a few examples on the board.
First we had to draw a couple of spheres to get used to drawing them accurately then, lines and random shapes which could be straight or curvy. Then we had to enhance the drawings. With one of the shapes you had to make it 3D and add mark making and shadow onto it. On that same shape we had to draw a cut out section to show that the shape was hollow. In the top right hand corner we did a little diagram to help us understand the perspective of doing 3D shapes.
Following the previous exercise we were asked to do eight things on the page which could include shape or line. This time using different materials we went round the table and worked onto different peoples work. The materials that were used on my work include felt tip, biro, coloured pencil, pencil and fineliner.
Again we were asked to draw eight marks on the page but they had to be different from the previous page. This time I started with soft pastels then passed my book to the next person to add enhancements to my marks. The materials used this time were biro and pencil.
After the lesson we were given homework and to practice out drawing so I went to a cafe and sat and drew the photo then when I got back to my flat added watercolour to the drawing.
I learned about how to draw spheres and improve my drawing skills which are vitual for my course such as in scale drawings.
