D1 A4 P1 E2: Emphasising form with cloth

Finished sketch


This project focuses on drawing fabric an clothing in preparation for drawing clothed figures later.


My mum posed for this for me whilst on holiday. I wanted to work loosely and quickly so I used pastels.


I started with a few rapid sketches some using line only some adding tone.


Overall I was pleased with the result. The folds and form of Mum’s jumper worked well. I could have taken a bit more care on her trousers, however. The folds became too defined and too regular especially on her stretched out leg.
