still life observational drawing at kids art club.

This week we set up three tables of objects to draw. We talked about

  • looking carefully at the objects
  • selecting the bits we want to draw
  • drawing the object from ‘my’ point of view
  • how to paint a gradient
  • mixing the colour we want
