Lines, Materials, Media and Composition

Drawing just for fun is natural, easy and enjoyable. Drawing for assignments can sometimes put a damper on the creativity especially if you need a good bit of direction.  The freedom in your own creativity can be somewhat limiting in this case.

Fortunately, knowing of and finding the materials needed to pull things off can really help in getting you started.  My first assignment is all about getting acquainted with some of the tools/media we’ll be employing in my drawing course.  Check it out below!

Lines and Mark Making:

  1. Using vine charcoal, draw varying lines and build a gradation line, using your finger or   a blending tool to blend
  2. Using compressed charcoal or a charcoal pencil, draw lines of varying pressure and thickness. Also build a gradation line, using your finger or blending tool to blend the tones
  3. Using graphite pencils, draw lines of varying pressure and thickness, emphasizing the angle of the pencil
  4. Using colored pencils, draw lines of varying pressure and thickness, emphasizing the angle of the pencil
  5. Using colored pencils, build 3 gradated lines from 100% color to 0% color
