A small exercise that introduces students to drawing and rendering using line. This photocopy of a shell (made by lying a shell directly onto the photocopier) is then cut, with removed portions redrawn using black pen.
Observational study for an International GCSE Art project - A comprehensive sketchbook page based on the natural forms of shells. In addition to trialling a range of media and drawing techniques, students looked more closely at texture. Charcoal drawings of textured surfaces, as well as an etching of a nautilus shell (with notes about the Golden Section) are included.
