I was debating whether or not to do this next month or not, since it's a bit last notice (and it's my birthday month woo!)
but I'm just too excited to wait! So, without waiting any further I'm going to announce the current schedule and the details of the first ever project piece!
[These are only my ideas so far, I would LOVE your suggestions so we can bulk out this schedule and have a really exciting month!
April 1st - 9th
Reminder and re-explanation of this month's project.
Top tips and some links to resources to get you started.Week two:
April 10th - 16th
More specific tips and resources related to nature. Week three:
April 17th - 23rd
More specific tips and resources related to man made structures, both modern and historical.
An opportunity to ask questions, now that you've had an opportunity to do some learning hopefully!Week four:
April 24th - 30th
Answering your questions from last month, with answers from experienced artists.
The deadline for the project (30th). Afterwards
Featuring of some of these projects!
Now that's out of the way, what will this project actually entail?
Well, I'm going to give you some themes and over the next month you can take up one or a few of these themes and practice drawing related backgrounds or objects!The themes are
Local - this one will have you drawing from life, a very handy skill!
Foliage - this one can be quite difficult, so if you're not experience with drawing trees etc. I reccommend you spend the whole month on this one!
Stone - from mountains to pebbles, this ones all about studying the structure and texture of this all-important material.
Water - you'll need to learn about colour, light, and the character of liquids. This one will be difficult, so you may want to treat it like the foliage theme!
Perspective - very important, especially for some very dramatic shots! Learn the ins and outs of one, two and three point perspective at least!
The project is very personal to you, so I'm not going to say any more about it, just learn how you learn best!
Keep a record of your progress, and if you want to share it submit it to our new folder (soon to appear!)
