Started sketching a new A2 size charcoal drawing today. Last year in TAFE we did a drawing exercise inspired by Jim Dine and his series of tool drawings. I was very taken with the idea and as I have access to some lovely old tools, I’ve decided to have another go.
This is a bit more complex than last time (I just drew three tools) but thought it was worth playing with. After spending quite a bit of time on composition, and I managed to get a quick sketch completed of the tools. There are a few lines to straighten and a few other bits and pieces to fix but that will happen as I continue. A lot more work to be done, but the next part is the fun part… getting all the light and shade in.
