Good.this is the kind of performance you are required to do in the exam. now lets move onto the theme sketching. i will send you a mail with some instrcutions in it. follow them and submitt the drawings by 15th jan.



Dear Riya, Always keep in mind the purpose of answering this test. NATA wants to test you some abilities and skills. this is a means of showing your abilities. you cannot afford to lose your focus. your freehand skill has gone haywire. you have done so many exercises on it and perfected it. and at the time of showing your ability you are neglecting / not doing it properly. I believe you can do a lot better if you give due attention and care. you have to put a conscious effort, attempting to get every aspect as perfect as possible. redo the assignment and submit it by 14th jan. do a good job.



good job. i guess now you know how to select interesting color schemes. now answer the mock test 2 freehand drawing and submit it. if you score well in it, we will go to next topic - theme sketching.

































































































































































































































































































































































read the theory of colors chapter. understand the different color scchemes. use split complimentary and double split complimentary combinations and color the pattern given in hte book in 5 different (split and double split) color combinations. you need to refer color wheel to detrmine those color combinations. submit the drawing by 7th jan. use sketchpens and create interesting stroke patterns. write to me if you have any doubts.


dear Riya, can you explain the reason behind the color selection. why you have chosen yellow+blue+white and other color?....and the pattern you have drawn is too dominating. avoid such patterning. the way you have done your previous coloring is very good except for the color choice. you just need to improve your choice of colors. you dont have to add new kind of paterning. submit your reason behind color selection by 4th jan. i will help you in choosing more apealing color combinations.


Dear Riya,

color application has come good, however similar paaterns can be shown all over the image. color combination is not impressive. i advise you to read through the color theory and princplies of composition chapter and try recoloring implementing those concepts. submit your drawing by 3rd jan. if you have any problem in understanding the concepts, please let me know.

Hi Riya,

i think you can use sketchpens for coloring. you need to explore more with using sketchpens. now you have colored the sketch with horizontal pen strokes. you can get creative by changing the direction of these strokes more sympathetic to the flow of the spaces. i suggest you recolor this drawing using a different stroke pattern.

umesh






good improvement, but there is still scope for improvemnt. you need to do daily practice to accomplish good freehand lines.

now lets move onto the coloring . take multiple copies of th eabove assignment. use 3 different mediums that you are comfortable with(color pencil / water color/ crayons/ sketchpens) and color the drawing. read through the coloring chapter for the choice of colors. submit the drawings by 30th october 2008.

regards

Umesh



Dear Riya,

The proportion of the drawing is good, however there is a lot of scope for improving your freehand lines. PLease make one last attempt ingettign the freehand good. practice , practice, practice. just make sure that when you attempt to draw the freehand lines, your palm moves smoothely along the line you draw. move you palm in the direction of the line a few times before you actually draw the final line. you can draw it better. please submit the drawing with good lines by 18th october. after that we shall move on to the next aspect- coloring.

regards

Umesh

please redo the assignment and submit by 10th october.


Submit this assigment by 4th october 2008




good job. always try to get freehand lines like this.




Dear Riya, i can see a lot of improvement in the ine quality. i believe you can do it much better. please give one final attempt and get the most appropriate freehand lines. then we shall move onto the next assignment. submit hte drawing by 30th september.

umesh





please do more practice on this exercise. i see that you are having problem when making lines darken using a sketch pen. you need to practice drawing a part of lines / curves in one single stroke. when you move your sketchpen fast accross the guideline you will get smoother lines. do more practice. submit atleast 2 drawing having smooth , freeflowing freehand lines. use the same assignment sheet / templet. we need fix your quality of freehand lines in this assignment itself, before going ahead with the other assignments

submit the assignment by next sunday.

umesh




lets us give more attention to your line quality. submit the above assignment by 16 th september. you need to do the assignment atleast 6 times and submit the jpegs. use a pencil first(3 attempts) and a black sketch for the other 3. take your own time and do it carefully. the freehand lines should be very neat and free flowing



line quality is better than the previous attempt.



Dear RiPLease redraw the image considering the feedback given. Donot color the image till further instructions. let us first get your line quality correct. attempt the drawing atleast 3 times with attention on quality of curve and submit the same by 28th july

regards

Umesh



































































































PLease submit the above assignment by 21st july

Dear sir,
I used the grid method that was given in the study material.

Thomas said...

Dear sir,
I had already submitted my free-hand drawing on 19th August. Did you receive it sir?

umesh said...

Dear sir,
I read the colour theory chapter but did not understand anything.
It is said that split complementary scheme combines the 2 colours on the either side of the colours compliment . An example is also shown (ie purple and red, its compliment colour given as green) so should I use all the three colour and make 5 different colour combinations or should I use purple – red and make 5 different colour combinations.
In double complimentary colour scheme, it is written that these are created by using colours that are next to each and then finding their opposites on the colour wheel
I did not understand that also…can you give me examples. Here too am I supposed to use all the 4 colours.

umesh said...

Let use consider purple, red and green as one set of split complimentary colors. Find 4 other split complimentary color sets (using the explanation) from the color wheel. Now use set one and color the drawing. Then use second set and color the next copy of drawing . Repeat this exercise using all the 5 sets, so you end up coloring 5 drawings with 5 different color combinations

Tip- use light colors for maximum spread areas and bright colors for minimum spread areas and try to create a balance between color contrasts, so that the whole drawing looks balanced and aesthetically pleasing. If you have a 24 / 48 shade color sketch pen set, you can use different shades of a color to make the drawing look dramatic. For example. Red, purple, green – all are very bright colors. In this case if you have a 48 color shade sketch pen set, you can use light green and light purple for maximum coverd areas and tinges of red at strategic areas to create interest in the drawing. So this combination uses only 3 colors – light green. Light purple and red. If in the exam they ask you to use 4 colors then you can chose a darker shade of the same color to add to your color combination. Example – light green, dark green, light purple and red. Or any other option that fits the split complimentary color theory.

This same logic can be applied for double split complimentary color scheme also.

The reason for using these color theories is that this is a very well researched area and by choosing the color combinations applying color theory , the chances of creating good color combination is very high.

Dear sir,
You have mistakenly uploaded Sayali Lakore's free hand sketch on my page

umesh said...

oops...thanks for informing.....but the assignment is for you...so go ahead and attempt it.

Thomas said...

Dear sir,
I have not received the mail yet sir, which you have mentioned on my page...It is written I have to submit the theme sketch by 15th January , but did not receive mail, how will I submit it tomorrow.

Thomas said...

Dear sir,
You have sent me two attachments, but I am able to open only one of them, because one is having an extension ' .docx ' which does not exist......so I was not able to open it...could you send me the attachment again

umesh said...

if you are able to open .doc, that is fine. both the attachments(.doc and .docx) contain same reading material.

Thomas said...

Dear sir,
You had asked me to submit the 5 drawings of one point perspective in the attachment you gave. Which are the five drawings? I drew the entrance to college, the kitchen view, the living room with the two tables. All these pictures had Example 1 and Example 2 written underneath it so I drew them. Should I draw the object and people in one point perspective also. There are four pictures of the same, should I draw all the four? Then, what is the fifth drawing?

umesh said...

Dear Riya,

please copy / redraw all the drawings in the document and submit them. the purpose of this assignment is to get you acquinted to one point perspective drawing. observe how the horizontal linea nad vertical lines behave in one point perspective. also observe how the size of same object changes in one point perspective.
