Still life drawing by Debora, Drawing Academy student

Currently I am working on drawings of geometrical objects. I would like to ask for your suggestions, for I want to improve my skills and technique. These are still life compositions made from life, the same objects from different angles. The first one is a linear drawing of the objects and their reflections on a shiny surface, with a window behind and above. The other drawing is rendered, the lamp was set left and above the objects.

Thank you.

Feedback from Vladimir London, Drawing Academy tutor

Dear Debora,

Thank you very much for your still life drawings.

Your constructive and tonal drawings are very good, well done.

There are minor details you may double-check. For example, when drawing a cylindrical object, the main axis of an oval will be always perpendicular to the axis of symmetry of that cylinder (green lines).

The cube and pyramid have reverse perspective (red lines).

And vertical axes of the pyramid and its reflection do not align (blue lines).

Also, there is a feeling that the cube is not positioned straight on the table, but tilted.

Draw more from life, practice judging proportions and dimensions by eye, continue making wireframe and tonal artworks.

You are on the right path.

Once again, thanks you for your drawings.

To your creative success,

Vladimir London

    Always the question to be asked is, where is your eye level and do the lines of your subjects meet vanishing point. You don’t have to draw them but you have to think that they are always there.
