We all had an amazing time with Amanda, we built our confidence in drawing, had a new experience and we found out so many new things about design and about ourselves.
First of all, we started to draw in a two points perspective grid that we built.
After gaining more confidence, we started to design a city in the same grid.
And my bitmap dinosaur, a labyrinth…
I admit that I was starting to have fun with perspective!
We also studied the five points perspective.
When we understood how it works, we draw more complicated objects.
This is my favorite one!
We then played with spirals and anamorphic illusions.
The next session was about typography.
I designed some letters in a grid based on the golden section and then I combined them together, to see how they look like and to study their structure.
I chose the B-G combination design and then I draw it into a two and five points prospective grid.
And I draw some buildings inside the letters with Indian ink. I found out that I really love this technique!
Finally, I combined the letters again, this time 3 letters together, G,B and A!
It was now time to have a look at all the work that our group produced.
I thought that the result was great, nearly everyone said that they were not good at drawing. But in the end, we were so proud and impressed by our work!
We became confident in our drawing skills and we started a new project.
This time we decided to do something more abstract and we worked in a team of 3 people. We combined Chinese, Japanese, Italian, French, English, Malayalam and a lot of more languages using different materials and techniques.
It was certainly an amazing experience drawing with a team on a huge Fabriano’s piece of paper!
