Virtual Refrigerator: Pencil and Charcoal Gallery

Welcome to another edition of the Virtual Refrigerator! Each week the blog hop will rotate between A Glimpse of Our LifeAngels of HeartHomeschool Coffee Break, and Every Bed of Roses. Add your link and then hop over to the other blogs and see what others are sharing! This week Chareen at Every Bed of Roses is our hostess.

We have started some schoolwork this week, but haven't done any art yet. So for today I am going back into the Virtual Refrigerator archives again and sharing some of Spencer's sketches during his junior year. He used (and we loved!) the Senior High Book 1 from ARTistic Pursuits.
The Tim Hortons coffee cup sketch has always been one of my favorites. 8-)

The above sketch of a goalie and the below sketches of stereo speakers were done during lessons that taught perspective.

This drawing was from one of the lessons about light and shadow. Spencer had to construct a box so he could direct light onto his subject from a specific angle. He stacked three miniature Stanley Cups in the box to draw for this project.

Almost all of the work for Senior High Book 1 is done in pencil or charcoal. Here are some of his charcoal drawings.

We reviewed ARTistic Pursuits during the last school year, with Kennady using a book for Middle School students. You can read our review HERE.
