Too hot today to do any sustained drawing, so I just did some very quick, five minute sketches of Venice, thanks to Google StreetView.

One painting

4 June 2020

So on the last day of the course, all those drawings are resolved into one painting: ignoring the original objects, and working only from the composition drawing of yesterday.


"Notes on a still life"
Acrylic on paper, approx A1.

Four small drawings and a big one

3 June 2020

Second day of the Dynamic Still Life course. Started early with a few more charcoal and pastel drawings.


 

Then we tore, cut, and collaged the drawings into a composition.

Twenty-nine drawings

2 June 2020

Attending a "Dynamic Still Life" online course with Simon Carter, arranged by Emily Ball. Started with charcoal drawings of everyday objects.




Then worked over drawings, erasing and redrawing in response to re-looking at the subject.



Finally, added some snippets of local colour in pastel, as the first stage in moving towards painting.
