Skeletons and Flowers, 8 x 22″, Graphite and Pastels
This was just a quick project with Drawing I that turned into something spectacular. We tried juxtaposing skeletons and bones with fake flowers and ribbons–I swear there’s a Georgia O’Keeffe tie-in here somewhere–and we got some pretty cool works out of it. I gave students a choice of graphite with pastels for a softer look, or all markers (black Sharpie with other colors) for a harder-edge drawing. Haley’s was the best of the bunch, and a really successful result for a first project in Drawing I.
