Second Art Sunday at the @RubbleGallery! #charcoal #drawing #arttherapy. Next one Mar 25!

We’re experimenting with a 1-2 times per month art afternoon at the Rubble Gallery and our first one was wonderful!  And so was today!!!  Thank you, ladies, and Henrik, for a fantastic afternoon and thank you Ari, Quinn, Bryn and the Rubble Gallery for your beautiful space!

Let’s let the photos speak for themselves!

My example of action line and form using Cher and Henrik as subject.

TAKE HOME EXERCISE:

We created a page of marks- drawing randomly in opposites- hard/soft, straight/curved, zig-zag/smooth etc.:

On a separate sheet we drew a portrait, pulling out the lights from the shadows using erasers:

Pull out the page of random marks and find the same face in those marks.  Just using the marks you made!  No new lines!  I guarantee you’ll find some line, some shape that suits!  This is an abstraction exercise called gesture drawing.

   

Then start adding a bit more detail.
