Self directed work: Drawing with a range of materials
This piece of self directed work aimed to help us draw using a different range of materials, and to learn the different effects each different media gave us. We were told to create 6 different drawings, mixing styles and variety within each piece. The mediums i used were; Graphite pencils, Graphite pencil crayons, Biro pen, fine liquid ink, Karisma colour pencils, and a fine Sharpe pen, as these were the only materials i had to draw with at this time. This task was all about getting us comfortable with drawing with different mediums and also seeing the effect each one of them has within a drawing. The task wasn’t too strict and it was important that we had fun with it, and just seen it as seeing how we find free-hand drawing. The objects could be anything around us, i tried to gather objects which would require working from different angles and had very different shapes and forms. So anyway, here are my 6 drawings! I hope you enjoy.
To excel the work coming over the following weeks it would be an idea for me to collect a wider range of drawing materials i.e. Chalks, pastels. This way i will be able to experiment with the outcomes of different mediums and will ultimately have a wider knowledge of suitable mediums to use for certain drawings.
