Finally finishing Week 6 of The Art & Science of Drawing. Today is about foreshortening.
- technique used to create the illusion that one part of the subject (or object) is much closer than the rest by drawing closer objects bigger and farther ones smaller
- prepare a banana with cross contour rings
- if a banana isn't available, feel free to substitute a similar object
- draw the banana a minimum of three times from three different positions
- each drawing should be more foreshortened than the last
- focus on overlaps, cross contour ellipses
- use line quality to convey distance with atmospheric perspective
