- Put a chair with a cloth draped over it in a simple environment.
-The goal is to depict the chair using two point perspective and depict the cloth with the use of chiaroscuro.
-Both of these devices were discovered and implemented during the Renaissance by every major artist.
(Do not copy the student examples. This is a DIRECT OBSERVATION drawing)
Chair with Cloth
Be sure to:
Let the angular parts of the chair show.
Do not cover more than 50% of the chair with the cloth.
Set the chair in an interesting environment.
Use two point perspective.
Keep the vanishing points off the page.
Just about every example is from a former student of mine. Many thanks to them for all of their time and dedication.
