Leaf object study – it is recommended as a model a potted plant, or a leafy branch, with care that the model is not perishable, and can be stable throughout the study.
We learn about different tyoes of leaves and their main features, apply the perpective concepts learned in the previous study, and add new concepts to learn how to restore the volume. We practice new methods of construction, helpful in the case of complex structures, like the one from this exercise, then we learn about “wow” effects and welcome contrasts in the three-dimensional rendering.
In the PDF material you will find a list of recommendations for the materials needed for the drawing.
This study lasts between 8 and 14 hours, depending on the complexity of the drawing, and the skill of the learner.
Our workshops and courses focus on the study and research of natural subjects through various disciplines, such as botanical art and flower design, landscape design, cyanotype, linocut, ink and textile dye. In forms of short workshops, distance learning, summer schools, art retreats and long term courses, our tutors aim to investigate creative explorations and authentic approaches of urban and wild nature.
