In the unit artists observe I learned how to look at objects and translate them into art. Taking 3-D objects and translating them onto paper could be challenging at points. The photo below (left) shows my drawing, from the first part of the unit, after observing a bottle of glue. It shows minimal understanding of perspective, value, and lines. The drawing shows I didn't take into consideration the depth of the bottle and the small details inside the bottle, the first drawing is very one dimensional. Later in the unit after learning many skills I observed the glue bottle again. The drawing on the right shows understanding of depth perception and the lines are drawn more curved showing the 3-D object. The value also improved over the course of the unit which helped when observing objects to make them more realistic.
The observational drawing on the left shows detail and understanding line value. By looking at a real flower and taking all the parts into consideration I was able to draw a realistic looking flower using different values. The scientific drawing above on the right is my final drawing from the artists observe unit. This drawing shows how my value improved because I made certain parts of the heart much darker using charcoal and then I shaded lighter parts using graphite. My drawing also looks 3-D because of the variation of weighted lines. My overall idea of perception also grew throughout the unit as shown in my final drawing of the heart.
