First task was to cover a A1 sheet of white paper with charcoal, make it dense black and then erase to create a rectangle. Inspired by Richard Serra. It was quite interesting to observe how the blackness rubs outs and creates a soft-edged shape.
Then next day we had to do charcoal again, now rubbing out a specific picture of light and dark. Too much charcoal. Sick of it now.
Today was the worst one: drawing a flower………… The task set sounded so complicated but in the end it was just a boring observational drawing of a plant, bleh. At least mine looks like a pineapple, would be better if it produced pineapples as well.
For all of these we had to think about boundaries, where the drawing starts and ends, didn’t really get it though.
Not very exciting start.
