Here's an example of my warm up exercise in pencil. I'll be into more of these as well as revisiting my blind contour drawing exercises.
I may not have mentioned that our course web site includes a weekly forum where we can post our thoughts and share comments. After some instructor encouragement, a group of us are perhaps becoming comfortable sharing our experiences.
Now, I know I should be focusing in and applying myself for the next five weeks but I simply could not resist sneaking down this curious little avenue. Images in the Margins is a wonderful little hardcover that has just arrived. And it's not just the fascinating content that excites me--the book itself is so nicely built. Heavy weight, smooth and glossy, the paper is so wonderful. The quality of the illustrations are just awesome. Layout is a work of art. Images in the Margins belongs to the Medieval Imagination series that includes Beasts Factual and Fantastic and Faces of Power and Piety.
