I had a free period this morning while substitute teaching so I made my first attempt at Jane LaFazio’s 8 objects / 8 ways page. I only found 6 objects to sketch in my quick look around the classroom. I drew contours with an OHTO Graphic Liner in a Canson XL Mix Media 9 in by 12 in sketchbook. I had already put in a 9 box grid of 3 in by 4 in boxes.
I added color with what I found in the room – 2 color pencils (brown and aqua green), 2 paper mate flair (orange and purple), a black sharpie ultra fine, a field green sharpie chisel tip, a blue expo dry erase marker, a brown blic marking fine point and 2 bic fluorescent highlighters (orange and yellow).
My attempt did not quite live up to Jane’s guide lines because I used two mediums color pencil and ink. You will see Jane’s at about 9 minutes into Jane’s sketchbook tour during week 4.
I will plan my next attempt ahead and work on the page over time.
