An introduction into Free-hand drawing

My first interior design lesson with Brian was very basic, as this was the very first step of my journey to becoming a designer. We started by simply learning to illustrate basic shapes standing up, as this way you could create more movement from the shoulder as opposed to just the hand. We learnt to repeat the shapes we drew i.e. curved lines; this way we could get an idea of how we would easily repeat these movements in the future.

Following this, we copied a sketch of a jug and fruit bowl placed on a table. Rather than just creating a rough copy of the sketch we were made to consider the juxtaposition of the objects. This way our copied illustrations were much more accurate and successful.

As seen, the drawing on the whiteboard is the one which we had to copy. The pencil sketch is my own attempt at recreating the drawing. I tried hard to keep the orientation the same by using specific measurements.

Illustrating basic shapes

Basic sphere drawings - Practicing circular movements with our arms. I then added shading to add perspective which i will explain later.

This drawing was solely to practice the different movements we could make with our arms so we could learn to draw from a distance, as opposed to up close. Drawing farther away gives us better perspective, scale, and overall a more successful drawing.

This sketch was about just playing with different shapes, and seeing if we could create some sort of image when overlapping them. Practice doing this yourself! Draw three or more overlapping shapes or expressions and you will almost always see some kind of figure out of it. Such fun!
