Transcript of Colorful Animals: Up Close and Textural

Drawing I: Up close and textural Animals Drawing Texture:
We will be doing six practice texture drawings.

You will have five minutes to draw each texture.

Why? It will get you looking at a picture and trying to imitate what you see.
The more your drawing can resemble an actual texture the more real all of your work will look. Josef Albers: Pre-Test
Color Theory
Drawing Techniques *You'll need a pencil and the pastels on your table* "one of the most influential art teachers of the 20th century" (artnet). 1888-1976 First students asked to be a teacher at the Bauhaus.
Theory: Color is dependent upon its surroundings
Most famous for: Homage to the Square Very influential art school in Germany Bauhaus What we will be doing:
We will be creating a 2x2 picture drawing (total of 4 pictures)
using pastel
drawing animals
focusing on texture and color theory Your Drawings One will be a monochromatic drawing:

This drawing will be the most detailed
and close up of the four drawings

The focus of this drawing will be on
TEXTURE Monochromatic ONE color with shades and
tints of that color One will be a complimentary drawing Complimentary colors are located right across from each other on the color wheel.
ex: Orange and Blue
Red and Green
Purple ad Yellow This one will be a drawing of one section of the animal ex: head, leg, wing etc. Complimentary colors right across from each other on the color wheel plus shades and tints One will be a split- compliment drawing Split complimentary:
one color and then the colors
on each side of the compliment
of that color.
ex: Red, Blue-Green, and Yellow-Green Red-Violet, Green, and Yellow This drawing will be of the whole animal You will need to choose
an animal think about the texture the animal has Choose from reptiles, mammals, amphibians, even insects Find three images of that animal 1.) the whole animal
2.) part of the animal
3.) very up close detail of the animal Then you will need to choose your layout
Draw your sketches
Start using pastel When using chalk pastels

Know they smear very easily, and they will produce a dust that will add up on top of your drawing.
You will need to tap your drawings on/over a trash can to help keep them clean.
Blending is easily done
Detail lines should be drawn on top of blended color and then should be left alone.
It may be easier to work from top to bottom or from back ground to foreground.
You have to find a style that works best for you.
Also it is very helpful to use a piece of paper under your drawing hand to avoid blending
And it can be used to keep clean lines
(acts as a boarder) Interaction of Color: Albers' most famous publication "one of the most prestigious and progressive art schools in Europe" (artnet). You will be graded on: appropriate use of color scheme
attention to detail
having two or more textures represented in your drawings
