38. Drawing 1, Assignment 2.

12 Mar 2018. For this assignment I decided to concentrate on objects on a window shelf, based on one of my earlier sketches. As I worked on various formats and viewpoints, I chose a vertical format and a high viewpoint. I also decided to include a view from the window. Preliminary sketches:

I worked a large piece of grey card after covering it with a layer of transparent gesso. I worked with hard and soft pastels, Derwent drawing pencils, charcoal, watercolour, coloured ink and oil pastels and wax crayon. As I was working I decided to use a different surface below the window shelf, so I glued a grey pastel paper on the card, and then used a dip pen and ink before deciding to add some grey pastels on the book and scissors, which I decided was enough. The finished picture:
