Composition – an interior
We were asked to observe places around the home and make sketches of different areas, in preparation for exercise 7, when we will make a drawing.
I looked around different areas of my home, which is a small and cluttered flat, and experimented with different perspectives, such as going up a ladder and lying on the floor.
I decided that the most interesting area was my son’s room.
I made these 4 sketches:
I used a fineliner pen in an A2 sketchbook divided into 4. I looked at the views through a wide angle lens to get a sense of warped perpsective, then tried to use this in my study.
They are just rough sketches, and I used directional lines some crosshatching to portray the shadows.
I then made a sketch, in pen and line, of the whole room but from a distorted perspective. I again looked through a wide angle lens to envisage what the perspective and proportions would be like.
I really like this distorted approach and think it’s the one I will take when I complete the task for exercise 7.
