Leaf Study Activity Log

leaf

When I started this activity, I knew that my drawing wasn’t going to be very good. I suck at drawing most things, and this is no exception. So, as, Mr. Nelson mentioned, I drew a quick outline of the leaf. It was not very good, but it was fine for me. I realized that there was now a big rip in the leaf and I had to draw it in. This made me somewhat annoyed, but I went on with drawing the features of the leaf. After a while I had to draw the veins of the leaf. I did not know how to do this. Mr. Nelson said not to use a dark pencil, but that confused me and made me even more annoyed, so all I did was carve it out with a light pencil and then rub it with pencil stub. Around this time I was done.

Blind Contour Activity Log

The first thing I thought was that this project was the most interesting thing I have ever done with anything to do with art. Then I looked at the mirror, and thought, “Oh, I can just use that to see my computer.” But then, Mr. Nelson took them away, and I was dumbfounded. As I drew the first one, I tried to capture the large, semicircular hair shape of my partner. I then moved down, and drew his large ears. I moved to his eyebrows, and got his eyes. I basically followed this format for the next contour. When I had to do myself, I thought, “That was what the mirrors were for.” As I drew myself, I knew that I wasn’t going to do a very good job since my last two weren’t very good. Then I did my self portrait and noticed that I was making it too elongated. I tried to salvage what I could, but I didn’t get very much.
