Just in time for spring, this next lesson requires a flower. It is best to pick a flower that has buds as well as the open flower, and leaves. We are still working with line drawing. You will be rendering this 3 dimensional, complicated object, to your flat surface.
Pick your flowers and set them standing up in front of you.
Use your viewfinder in front of the flower. Remember to close one eye to flatten the image.
Draw the image with an erasable felt tip directly onto the viewfinder.
On your drawing pad, trace the middle vertical and horizontal to match the viewfinder.
With your #2 pencil, transfer the main points on the plastic plane to your paper. Remember to use the edges of the viewfinder as well.
Set the viewfinder aside. Look carefully at your flower. With your #4 pencil, redraw the edges.
Erase the crosshairs. Sign and date.
