DRAWING/ 16.08.2019/ JAI SHAILEN RANJIT/WEEK 3

In this class we were told the main difference between gesture sketching and gesture drawing, using types of shading. We had learnt how to do quick gesture sketches and now it was time to learn how to draw with more accuracy and observation. We were taught the main types of shading styles like:

  • hatching
  • cross hatching
  • stippling
  • scumbling
  • scribbling
  • patterning

I had been using few of these shading styles in my compositions unknowingly because I did not know the technical words for these shading techniques until this class.

Our task was to capture day and night pictures of the same place and draw and shade them accordingly. It was a big leap from rapid sketching to shaded compositions. It required time and effort but there was a sense of satisfaction of trying, that I felt after completing the compositions.

When I asked sir, how I was I going to differentiate between the day and night pictures using shading, he said that, that is what he wants me to observe and capture myself. It was the first time we were making compositions so he wanted me to experiment and explore and test my observation skills.

These are the day and night sketches that I drew after observing the contrast in the light and shadows in the two pictures-
