The second sketchbook assignment had two parts, the first being a series of lines and gradations exploring different dry media, to get an idea of what you can do with them. (Lots of squiggles below.)
The second part was a series of sketches for a still life drawing of square and circular objects, showing four different angles. For the drawing assignment based on this, we were to choose the best or most interesting angle. I ended up going with the angle that’s looking slightly up from below.
