Wrappings and Bindings

Wrapping   Binding

I was given the current project brief for my new art class when I visited the college at Todmorden.  The theme is ‘Wrappings and Bindings’.

    How original. These are vey good, especially the feeling of real people underneath, a difficult technique.

  2. Carole,
    I remember the difficulty Michelangelo had in the beginning when he tried to get limbs to look real, so the fact that you’re alert about the look, makes me think you are a budding genius as well.
    I have an inexpensive statue of a young girl holding a cat on her shoulder; I’ve had the thing awhile so I’ve studied it and it looks like her arm is hanging out of the sleeve. Is that where foreshortening comes into play?

  3. Hi Connie,
    Foreshortening is where you have a part of the body nearest you that seems disproportionately large when you try and draw it compared to the rest of the body. It’s difficult to visualise what you mean about the statue.

    Not sure about the budding genius bit 😉

  4. I’m not sure about these – they spook me a bit, especially the one on the right… it reminds me of something I don’t want to think about, my head keeps coming up against a blank wall. There’s a lot of life in that one. The light and shade is really good. (I can’t spell chiathingy)
