Assignment 4

Both drawings are of my Mum ... doing the 2 things she does most ... drinking tea and sleeping.

The first was using pencil to create lines. I wanted it to have a continuous line feel about it and think this worked well, although the lines on the face make her look 20 years older!

The second drawing was using coloured charcoal sticks to create tone.  I tried really hard not to draw hard lines, but the shadows of the creases on the leather sofa were very line like. However I did manage to stay away from lines on the face and upper body, and I think you can see the features without having to draw them in.

Overall I am extremely pleased how far I have come, from not being able to draw at all, to being able to make shapes look like people ... and am surprised that my final drawings bear a resemblance to my Mum.
