campus sketchcrawl

I am so lucky that my job affords me the opportunity to draw...daily. This morning my class and I did our own sketchcrawl around campus. It was a lot of fun for me and I hope a lot of fun for my students. As part of their assignment I asked them to post their favorite drawings to a newly formed class blog. The deadline isn't until Tuesday so much of their work may not be posted until after the weekend, but here's the link in the meantime. By the way, any feedback you can leave them is VERY appreciated!

The sky was very overcast this morning and as a result, there were hardly any shadows. I know my drawings would be a lot stronger, however, if I had fibbed and added a more defined light source. This is something to remember for next time.




It wasn't until the temperature began to warm up (we had a chilly start) that I began to loosen up drawing. I think it is for this reason that my last two drawings are, in my opinion, my strongest.

Wow Suzanne you really amaze me. These are all absolutley brilliant. Your lines are SO clean. They all look like such confident drawings too. And, in my opinion, you couldn't get a cigerette paper between them in terms of strength. Amazing.

I love the new science building in particular -- did you draw straight with the pen? There is so much confidence in your lines.
