I’ve started this drawing course. I’ve been drawing with graphite pencils.
But I’ve been thinking lately, that my drawings tend to lack contrast. That they are all pretty light in tone and that I really do not have a feeling for depth. Like the things I draw are kind of flat and are just what they are… drawings. They do not have the weight and mass of the actual object that I’m seeing.
So, I thought I would try something new and dramatically different. I decided to draw a still life using photoshop.
I really liked the way the chili pepper came out. The tomato was a bit more difficult. I could have put more time into it, but I wanted to see what kind of a response people had.
that’s a good pepper.
to draw the tomato you must BE the tomato. or something.
I never was much good at still lifes.
I like the photoshop because it’s more abstract in a way. I like abstraction.
I don’t really care that much about reproducing the tomato as it looks to the eye. I’m more about capturing something of the quality/essence of the tomato in an abstraction.
but you’re doing good.
I can’t get excited about a painting that could be a photograph. I appreciate the skill, but it leaves me cold.
Why not draw a corn on the cobb(head)
