In todays lecture we were tasked with going outside (or looking out our window), and drawing something that we could see. The aim of this task was to get us used to drawing from life, as our project includes urban sketching.
My work was very much inspired by Lucinda Rodgers work, which I enjoyed using to inform my own practice. I began drawing with a pencil to get the initial sketch down and then went over the top with Indian Ink, for the thicker lines I used a black posca pen and a thick ended sharpie. I really enjoyed drawing from life, although I found it difficult to get the perspective exactly right, it helped me to understand the importance of getting the physical experience of the form rather than just drawing from a photograph. The only downside was the slight precipitation and the chilly wind, but other than the weather an ultimately enjoyable experience.
