Drawing and Painting Classes Noosa

Di and Lorey engrossed in  their painting class

Drawing as part of our day classes has  continued on from last term and has been very popular,
Last term we looked at contour and gesture drawing, this term we got down to the basic elements of drawing, 
Straight and curved lines and the relationships between them, horizontal, verticals , diagonals, curves, circles and spheres. This laid the groundwork for drawing an object realisticly  using the pencil to judge size and proportion
Set up for still life
In our last lesson tone was introduced using hatching  and  cross hatching to  add tone to a group of objects
