This exercise involved us drawing grid lines onto an image and cropping and expanding it onto a canvas by painting the image square by square. This was the first tiem I’ve used oil paints and I was quite happy with the results. I did some of the painting with the image and canvas held upside down, to make sure I wasn’t looking at what the shapes were (ie. a shoe) and focussed on the tones and colours in the space.
