Here are a some exercises by students in Drawing and Composition class!
Right: Angela poses with her “up the hill/down the hill/straight on” perspective drawings.
Below left: Marty’s intricate tree is an exercise in negative and positive space.
Below right: Rae’s scene of a country road was drawn by turning the original upside-down before copying. We’ll sometimes fold the original in fourths, or else lay a screen over it to divide it up like window panes. By drawing a small section at a time it’s not so overwhelming.
