Project 1: Fabric and Form
Exercise 2 Emphasising form with cloth
I wasn’t quite sure how best to approach this exercise, but my housemate offered to let me sketch him as he worked on his laptop: I managed to get a couple of sketches out of this, though he did move quite a bit!
As I sketched, and observed how fabric affects the overall form of a person, I noted the following:
- It is a lot more difficult to measure proportions, including foreshortened limbs, particularly when the fabric is thicker;
- As with the last exercise, I found that some mediums were a lot more suited to observing the softness of the fabric, such as the graphite sticks.
