Carl Fasano’s Drawing Class, Fall 2008, RISD
18″ x 24″, 24″ x 32″ compressed charcoal on paper
We began the semester drawing the edges of things. These are two still lifes, well, the edges of two still lifes.
This is a doorway. Carl described it as “having a sense of quietude.” I’ll let you decide what that means since I still haven’t.
Blind contour figure drawing is a blast.
A figure drawing from class.
Before you judge my abilities, on this day in Carl’s class we were drawing the figure with our NON-dominant hand. It was weird and unpleasant.
This was my first self portrait. Carl didn’t like it. Especially because I was still in the studio in the morning when class started and I hadn’t finished. The background still isn’t finished.
These are some studies I did for my final assignment, a (minimum) 4′ x 6′ self portrait. They’re pretty rough but they were fun to do.
This is my final self portrait. The photo quality isn’t incredible, but you get the idea. Also, the seam of the two pieces of paper is a little off, but you get the idea.
