This project was about exploring natural form. The drawings were done from life.

Art 16 - 1920

Whilst drawing this, I realised there was a lot of intricate detail that needed to be considered, especially in the wing. 

Art 17 - 1920

Then I moved on to shells using oil pastels trying to create form and emphasise where the light caught the shell.

Art 18 - 1920

This still life composition was my final drawing of close up natural form. I used mixed media including oil pastels, pencil and ink and wash.

Art 15 - 1920

Using a third party sourced image, I transcribed the a drawing into the above pastel. I tried to use colour to help add depth to the image using darker colours in my foreground and progressively lighter as I worked into the background.
