Broccoli: I look like a tree
Walnut: I look like a brain
Mushroom: I look like an umbrella
Banana: Can we change the subject??
Ok on a more artistic note I decided to bring it back to basics. Sometimes you only need something simple to do some really beneficial studies. Here are some I did of mushrooms.
They are your basic studies using charcoal, acrylic, pencil. I used cardboard to add texture in the acrylic and with the pencil I was studying the structure of it as if I was building a model. I was also trying to add shadow to the piece by thickening and thinning the pencil line. A great little trick to focus you on areas of shadow while building a form/depth of object. Sorry about the smudges .. I’m messy 🙂
These are great things to do if you are doing a portfolio for a college.
I did a similar one for mine with broccoli (actually I did a six foot charcoal drawing of a brocolli it was so cool- if only I took as much photos back then!)
I suppose I should go eat some mushrooms and nourish my body instead of my creativity 😛
Hope you all had a lovely bank holiday! I busy doing caricatures and paintings so it’s great to be kept busy.
