Visual Studies – hw 3- van Gogh




In this homework we were given two of Van Goghs pencil drawings, he only uses shadows and different shades of pencil to add tone and meaning to the picture and his strokes are usually either cross hatched or just straight lines utilised to make the picture.

We were given his cowboy man to draw and his hay bale drawing, we could draw sections or the whole thing, I tried to both but i zoomed in on a specific area, i used short and sharp lines to define the facial features of the farmer and lighter lines when working on the landscape.
