Project – Detailed Observation
Exercise – Line Drawing Detail
Unfortunately for the first line drawing, a section through a Chinese lettuce (Bok Choy), I overlooked the exercise instruction requiring “continuous lines” which obviously my lines are not and could not have been with this object. However I have included it. I had to put the dots in the leaf stalk sections as they and the voids, if blank, did not make the drawing realistic enough/sufficiently representational.
The second drawing, a section through a broccoli, is not as realistic as the first but is a continuous line drawing.
The limitations of the technique prevented me getting the overall shape correct and also creating some of the details.
However it’s OK and I doubt a second attempt would have been any better.
