Term 8, Brainstorm School Summer ’22 Part II, Week 2
Week of June 20, 2022
For full context, see the description of my Art Home School Curriculum.
I barely finished all my homework this week, and didn’t have time for any extra drawing. I had fun drawing animals all week though. I had some shoulder pain during the middle of the week, but consciously relaxing my shoulder while anchoring my elbow has made the pain go away. I found a helpful video series that explains all the ways artists can injure themselves and how to avoid them.
Drawings and Critiques
Brainstorm PBC (Perspective Boot Camp) week 2 homework.
As simple as these warmups are, they reveal weaknesses in my technique. I’ve started focusing on keeping my wrist straight and sliding my elbow. I put a crocheted pad under my elbow to make it slide across the table more smoothly.
Brainstorm FND I week 5 homework.
Next week I’m supposed to practice taking simplified animal forms and rotating them around, posing them differently from how they appear in the reference.
