Hyper-realistic drawing in Sulman Program

Art workshops in the Sulman Program this term have students practising their skills in the field of hyper-realistic drawing. The students were challenged to portray their subject in a way that captures the realities of life. 

   

Students worked with coloured pencils and learnt how to slowly build layers of colour through different blending techniques. Students were taught the importance of creating depth through the use of tone to give the illusion of three dimensional form.

      

This activity was a test of patience for our students as their work slowly developed over the weeks. Students were surprised by the end results and enjoyed the process.
