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!
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.
