Is welcome to the tenth video. And the secret to drawing video course brought to you by the virtual instructor dot com. And this video we’re going to take a look at drawing from life drawing from life means drawing from here observation without the aid of photography or photographs drawing from life is recommended over drawing from photos because the conversion from three dimensional forms to the two dimensional illusion of a drawing happens with the artist drawing from life tips that will cover in this video include lighting a still life composing a still life choosing a better composition with the aid of a viewfinder. And lastly we’ll talk about sighting techniques. Let’s first talk about lighting a still life in this example. There is one strong light source in this case. I have set up a strong spotlight coming from the left side. Notice what happens with the highlights and shadows. Here’s the same scene lit with two spotlights or two light sources. Carefully consider your light sources when you’re saying if you’re still alive. These lights will affect the overall mood of your drawing. Also consider different props that you could add to make the drawing more interesting. But be sure to arrange them in a way that will create more successful compositions. Consider using a viewfinder to help find interesting compositions. A viewfinder is simply a cut piece of paper with a window. Preferably it should match the proportions of your finished drawing paper. You can hold it up in front of your still alive and fun compositions that are going to be more successful once you’ve found a composition that you feel like successful you can begin to draw from observation . I like to begin my drawing by finding basic shapes that I can reproduce on my surface. I’ll draw lightly at the beginning stages and try to find relationships that exist between these shapes using my viewfinders of God I’ll occasionally look at the edges and where the edges of the viewfinder line up with the edges of the shapes. This will help me find the negative space between the objects and the edges of the picture plane. It’ll help me arrange my drawing as I work. I can become more confident with the marks that I make and progressively get darker. I’m not concerned totally with accuracy at this point. Instead I’m trying to figure out all my paper the relationships that exist between objects. In fact you can see here I am drawing several different circles for the app. Once I become confident of the locations of the apples and the other objects in my still life I can begin to darken up the contour lines that exist on those objects to help me find some of the relationships that might exist between objects. I may use siting techniques siting techniques can aid you in determining Saaz relationships that exist . If I hold my pencil out in front of me as I look at my still alive and out position my thumb at the bottom of an object and the top with a pencil at the other end of the object I get a relative size of that object. I can then take that information down to my paper and draw the object about the same size as the way that I see it. I can do the same thing with another object that I see in my still life. I can then use that information to compare the two sides of the objects to be sure that I’ve got the relative portion of those objects correct on my paper. It’s important to include everything that you see in your life. This may not always be the case in the case of my drawing. However the folds of the fabric in the background play an important role in the overall composition of the drawing I’m creating. It’s important in my case to include those in my drawing . Once her contour line drawing is established on the surface of our paper we can begin to add the range of value that’s important for creating the illusion of a light source. In this case I’m using a harder graphite pencil so I’m choosing to add my value with hatching and crosshatching of course different artist approach still life drawing in different ways. In my case once my lab was complete I like to focus in on one area and branch out from that one area to complete the rest of the drawing. This keeps my mind focused on what I’m actually saying and keeps me from becoming overwhelmed with all the other information that’s in front of me . As I continue to add value in different areas on the drawing I’m trying to remain consistent with the marks that I’m making. It’s always a good idea to pick a value adding method at the beginning of the drawing. Then stay consistent throughout that drawing a Masao trying to keep the directional lines that I’m using for different objects in the drawing going in the same general direction . Don’t neglect the values that you may see in the background. All the values in the drawing are important . So what do we learn in this video. Well first we learn that drawing from life is a preferred method of improving drawing skills. We also learned that a viewfinder is a useful tool that can be used to improve composition when drawing from life. We also learn that siding can aid in finding relationships that exist between subjects and a drawing from life and the next video we’re going to take a look at a few techniques that will help you draw from photographs.
