Session 2

Chapter navigation:

  • Introduction to detail sketching
  • Share learning intentions with the group. "Today we are going to use our prior knowledge of observation to sketch the fine details of a feather."
  • Give the students their tools for detail sketching, pencil, A5 paper, feather and magnifying glass.
  • Show portrait and landscape views and discuss which viewpoint would be best for drawing a feather.
  • Discuss lines, shape and grip of pencil. A light pencil grip will create feathery soft lines. Tear drop shape with a rounded bottom and a pointed tip. Whispers along the edges.
  • Sketch feather; keep using the terms used in the discussion.
