Drawing 1. Assignment 1. more preliminary work.



I wanted to focus on the reflections and refraction in the metal plant holder and glass pencil jar. I read about oiled charcoal on a fellow student’s blog (Janetdaviesartblog) and thought this might give me the depth and precision I was looking for. I left sticks of charcoal in olive oil overnight and before using, blotted them off. The charcoal adhered better, was less crumbly and made darker marks. It was still possible to lift it with a putty rubber.

I feel like I’m getting closer to getting the light and dark in the picture.
