This drawing unit is to learn new ways of drawing and depict the quality of the objects we are drawing.

I chose pipes as my theme and bought different kinds of pipes which were made of different materials. I put them together as a still life and made some detailed drawings which allowed us to really observe the still life carefully.

I also did negative space drawing and mix media using different materials in one drawing and even took some pieces of the actual still life materials and put them in our works. Mark making is to use the still life as a tool instead of a brush or a pen to make marks on paper. Some still lifes made some really different patterns and textures which we can’t made using a brush.
