Balance and foreshortening are two advanced concepts to master in drawing. But Pat Knepley makes it easy with these lessons on how to incorporate them into your drawings.
Lesson 29 – Balance and Symmetry
Learn how informal and formal balance (symmetry) are key components to creating better drawings
Lesson 30 – Circles and Ellipses
Linear perspective is easier when using a ruler for straight lines … but what about circles? See what happens when circles are seen in perspective as you explore ellipses. A fun chalk pastel drawing will be “out of this world!”
Lesson 31 – Foreshortening (Whoa! That was Close!)
Use the process of foreshortening to explore what happens when things are seen in extreme perspective! Get ready to take a tumble with a silly drawing using this extreme technique.
Lesson 32 – The Bug Jar Project
This special project utilizes what you’ve learned in these lessons. You’ll use various media – pencil, ink and colored pencil – to explore a familiar subject – BUGS.
