Drawing Project 1

First Drawing Project consisted of looking at a skull of a skeleton and creating a cardboard mask from flat shapes.Drawing Project with James 1

We’ve looked at particular artists that used skulls as their objects. We began with Leonardo Da Vinci and his anatomy drawings of skulls. Next stop was Hans Holbein and his painting ‘The Ambassadors’, an anamorphic image of the skull. Frans Hals was also research due to his painting ‘Young Man Holding a Skull’. Lastly we looked at Picasso’s Folded Sculptures which were the main inspiration for our own Cardboard sculptures.

Because our Project theme is ‘Time’, this drawing session had a great connection with the symbol of a skull = death. The theme of the end of the time was always repeated by artist as death is something unknown yet certain.

I am very interested in experimenting with different techniques of creating textures.
