An objective drawing (Exercise)

In this exercise I have taken an item from the provided list and explored this object visually. I have become aware of its texture, physical qualities and function. What is the item for – what does it do?

I have chosen a pair of glasses and a hat.

For the glasses. I have used HB-6B pencils with shadow and tones to let the glasses stand out of the background.

For the hat, I tried simple lines first, then with HB-6B pencils. I used shadow and tones to make it have a three-dimension effect. Finally I used fine lines for the appearance, its textures, physical qualities and function. To show that it is a warm hat.

I like to use the pencils they can match up with rubbers, then use them to highlights areas and use some special effects.

I like the fine lines appearance but I find it more difficult to control and get the effects I want.

I will carry on to try more ways to draw objective drawing and improve my visually draw ability and technical.

  1. Hi Aileen,
    Thank you for your message saying that you saw my blog. I hope your Drawing 1 Course is going well for you. I am now on Part 5. I like your drawings of the glasses and hat. They are very 3-dimensional and your texture is very convincing.
    Good luck with the course.


    1. Thanks for your encouragement Mary. Sorry for the late reply that I was in China and just came back last then sorted my submission of assignment 3.
      I guess you have completed your drawing 1 course? Good luck for your assessment.
