I took intro to art because I have always wanted to be a good artist, but never felt like I had the skills. I wanted intro to art help me obtain the skills and teach me techniques to excel at art and become better.
Edges and Contours: This is a contour line drawing of my own hand.
Spaces (positive & negative): This is a drawing of a bicycle wheel completed by drawing the negative space (the black parts) which created the positive space as well.
Relationships and Proportions: This is a drawing I did of a corner of the art room using measurements to make it the most accurate. This drawing strategy I learned the most from because it can helped me really realize that drawing is not as simple as just drawing what you see/think you see , and it really makes everything I draw while utilizing it look so much more realistic.
Lights and Shadows: This is a still life drawing that I created using charcoal and drawing the lights and shadows cast on it for it to look as three dimensional and realistic as possible.
