*Teaching points: direct observation, visual and spatial
This assignment focuses on drawing from direct observation. (looking at
the real thing)
- Choose two ordinary objects at home which have a relationship to one
another but are not the same size at all. (Like: the front
door and a key -- or -- the refrigerator and an apple.
- Draw the two different sized objects as if they are the
same size, and draw them so they have a new relationship
at the new size.
(So: the key is as big as the door in the new relationship, and can only
lean upon it!)
(So: the apple could be so big that it occupied the entire inside
of the refrigerator!)
Be inventive! think up your own two related objects, and observe and
draw their details carefully. Plan an interesting composition on the page.
