Starter exercise - You will discover how to apply the principles of perspective to a single cylindrical object in a drawing (with reference to Brunelleschi)

Main exercise - You will draw a still life - We will be using a specific light source and describing a group of cylindrical objects set up in a composition. You will discover how your eye-level is integral to the drawing and will effect the perspective of what you can see. You will use simple one point perspective in order to develop and create a realistic representation of the subjects. You will also learn how to describe the negative spaces, the lost and found edges within your drawing, which can add intelligence and animation to the piece.

For this exercise we will be working with charcoal and soft pastels.
