I just started this new blog for the sake of art students enrolled in my General Drawing class at Fairleigh Dickinson University. It acts as a supplement to the class work. Feel free to comment on it. I am particularly interested in the comments from current students as well as fellow artists.
This 60 second drawing is an example of how you want to address the entire page at the start.
You can use a light touch to feel your way around the page and dictate how you want to crop what you see in front of you, turning into a picture on a page.
Quickly define where the shadows will be. You can fine tune later with an eraser and a pencil/charcoal to make the light areas lighter (eraser) and the dark areas darker (pencil/charcoal).
