Introductory exercises are a good way of “warming up” when it comes to art workshops. It’s always interesting to compare not only what individuals produce, but how they work. Everyone has their own way of approaching a common topic. Some choose to draw several views, others get straight into painting, while others spend time just looking, carefully at their subject before embarking on their creative journey.
Note the differences not only in design, but of colour choice in each of the five examples. Some compositions are simple, others complicated.
You will notice the lack of detail that the major works contain when I post them later in the week. The longer the students spent on this topic, the simpler their work became. I wonder why?
