Robert Henri: “Advice about your paintings is difficult.  As I said before, I cannot interest myself in whether they will pass juries or not. More paintings have been spoiled during the process of their making, through such considerations, than the judgements of juries are worth.”

Form and Value: Using what you remember about form from our earlier drawings of 2 point perspective cubes, cylinders, and pyramids? Using the objects that has been set out in front of  you and spend the hour working on drawing it to scale (1:1). Look at all the shadows, reflections, highlights and darks. Practice LOOKING. It is all about the eye! N: DEMO AGAIN – Sighting in and Searching for lines. DO NOT ERASE.

TODAY - We TALK about the process of SKETCHING and Preliminary Ideas - OBSERVATION Drawing. http://pre11.deviantart.net/4c6c/th/pre/f/2010/304/0/d/ball___cube___cylinder___ring_by_gartus-d31w5zb.jpg
