The exercise on the study of organic and non-geometric forms is a continuation of the previous exercise. In this exercise we will use different materials to study more intricate forms.
Studying a leaf.
There are three parts to this exercise,
• Draw the leaf using lines with a soft pencil and try to understand its subtle forms and simple shape.
• Draw the same leaf again, this time depicting the details and textures along with the subtle form changes across the leaf.
• Draw the leaf with a light grade pencil and then paint it using a brush and black ink, so as to understand the three dimensional form with just two tones.
Studying a cloth.
Set up a still life study with interesting cloth material and compose it in a way that it maximises our understanding of folds and the organic nature of the material. Capture a pencil sketch of the study using a soft grade pencil.
Composition of objects.
Create an interesting composition from life and create a pencil sketch of the same.
Study the silhouette of a posed human figure with an understanding of the negative and positive shapes of the figure. Each sketch is to be done within a minute.
Each of the above exercises should be done within 30 to 40 minutes.
