Apple spheres and apple boughs, student art display, adult drawing class, 10/1/18

We started with some follow-along practices on drawing spheres. Just a single line encircling a circle can give a feeling of form to a flat disc. We drew several and added basic hatching or shading to convey the form. Color over the whole sphere makes a conceptual apple.

We did continuous line drawings from my reference photos of apple boughs at an apple orchard. Then we either added color to those drawings or drew again to have both a line drawing and a color drawing.

You can find my reference photos on my other blog, CKNotes

And here, hopefully, is a PDF of a similar lesson, with watercolor and crayon illustrations to print out.
