The first afternoon exercise was drawing found objects. I did a leaf and twig as shown after the break.
It's a good illustration of firstly how much information you can get from a simple sketch, and secondly how little information you actually need from the sketch to create quite a detailed final work.
This weekend I have another class - Structure and Form, with Catherine Hayes and Dan Wilkinson. The Saturday as I understand is looking at how bones fit into the body, and using this knowledge to help get the proportions and connections correct. The Sunday is building on this to add some body to the structure. Should be good fun.
