Still Life - 10x14 - Graphite Pencil - February 2016
The assignment this week for Natural Science Illustration was to draw a vegetable - fruit still life. We sketched several thumbnail compositions. After choosing the best of the composition, I did a proportion scale and enlarged the sketch by 200% to create a approximate 9 inch sketch. The enlarged sketch was then transferred to 140# hard press paper. The shadow made the drawing a little over 9 inches. The task was to shade and shadow the drawing as a first step. Afterwards I selected colored pencils and created a "color recipe" card. Then the color drawing was shaded and shadowed.
