Drawing from Imagination

Drawing II
Project Parameters

Drawing from imagination: After exploring the work of another


artist, create a series of three images that develop ideas from your
own imagination. The images should use the same medium, and the
same general subject, but should each be a unique image.
Many artists create their
own unique visions of
the world around them
as they draw.
Often,
they begin with things
tat are familiar to them
drawings of things that
they know.
Then, by
abstracting
and
changing
what
they
know, they beging to
draw solely from their

imagination.
Yuri
Laptev, an artist from
the Ukraine, works in this manner. His drawings, etchings and watercolors
are based in the familiar. But, as Laptev creates, his imagination takes over,
making fantastical turns as he blends images from many sources. Often,
drawings from imagination look like illustrations. Often, they are created by
the artist as illustrations, but more frequently they are creating fantastic
representations of their own thoughts.
To see Yuri Laptevs fantastic, imaginative drawings, watercolors and
etchings, visit his website, http://www.laptevart.16mb.com/?ch=home .
1. To complete this project, begin by looking at Laptevs or another artists work,
which was created from the artists imagination. Study how the artist created
the images. Comment on that artists work on your website. Explain what
you like about that artists work. Link to examples.
2. Decide upon the subject matter of your own imagination drawings. Locate
items you would like to use for reference. (Many times, having items to look
at is a good starting place for drawings from imagination)
3. Make planning sketches and drawings. Develop a series of thumbnail
drawings, considering composition as you complete these small planning
drawings. Photograph, post and comment upon your thumbnail drawings on
your website.
4. Choose the best three of your thumbnails to turn into your finished work.
5. Decide upon your drawings size, medium and ground. Post your decisions.
Explain why you made your decisions.

6. Draw the three still-life images. Take care to be accurate and meticulous.
Really consider the light source, and take your time adding shadows and
highlights. As you draw, post your progress.
7. When finished, critique your work, posting photos of your three drawings and
your critique of the three pieces.
