Interior Drawing

This drawing is of the interior of our hallway upstairs and bathroom. I created this work in class with my students to explain sighting and one-point perspective. As part of the assignment, they were also required to incorporate a narrative quality in the work as well. This an 18″ x 24″ graphite on Bristol drawing. The bathroom upstairs was our first big renovation in this house (you can see just how “big” it was by the size of the bathroom).

I began this charcoal self portrait with my Drawing 1 students a few weeks ago.  I was teaching them how to begin a self portrait drawing, using the Grid Method. I began working from a photograph and completed the drawing by observation. After all, we are our own 24/7 model! Today I added some more value and contrast, completing the drawing.  I thought that I would share how it turned out.
