Bicycle studies to kick off the fall session. This lesson is all about composition, different types of lines, creating value with charcoal, and getting messy. Once they have their 3 boxes drawn, i take away the erasers! Mistakes are opportunities to continue your drawing.
Students start by doing 3, 5 minute studies in pencil.
The first study is a contour line drawing of the entire bicycle.
Students then have about 1/2 hour to do a detailed charcoal study of the bicycle on the rest of the page.
