This week Beth is naming the Draw, The Magpie and the Shiny Things!
Beth has also captured her drawing in stages to share her process of creating a picture. We’d love to see yours.
If you are tempted to have a go, please share your drawings with us! We would love to see them. Email them to Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come back next Wednesday to see what new objects Beth has chosen.
This week’s additional ideas:
- Take a piece of paper and scrunch it up. Try to draw the folds and shadows it creates.
- Find an interesting landscape either in real life, or a photograph and try to draw it in seven lines.
There is no time limit – but you can only draw seven lines on your page. As soon as you lift the pen off the sketchbook, the line is counted and you only have seven lines in total. The exercise makes you think about the most important elements within the image as a means of representing it.
