We will use further exercises with graphite, conte pencil and pen and ink to train the eye. We will also introduce techniques with colour pencil. Topics will include foreshortening, symmetry, spirals and how the Fibonacci series relates to complex forms in nature.
Students will gain the maximum benefit from this course by completing at least 3 hours practice between classes.
