Drawing Insects in Wire and Tracing Shadows in Black Pen

Following on from Drawing Insects in Black Pen in continuous line, students were given a piece of modelling wire (approx. 1m long) and were asked to use the wire to ‘draw’ an insect.

The purpose of this exercise was to help ‘see’ and draw form and to make line drawings whilst really thinking about the quality of line achievable in black pen.

This was also an exercise in simple abstraction or simplification of subject matter.

Before attempting this exercise students had practiced Drawing Insects in Black Pen in continuous line as well as Drawing Insects with a Hard (H) Pencil
