Drawing an office chair

18 Feb

I decided to draw an office chair and see how my chops are at still life. Aside from the fact that the proportions are way off, the drawing is pretty good. The back rest is too big in comparison to the seat.

Some initial measurements wouldn’t be bad next time.

Actually, this a good example of drawing multiple lines for the initial drawing (a key point in “Keys to Drawing” by Bert Dodson. While the proportions might be off, if you see the back rest and seat separately, this is a fine drawing for my skill level.

Again, I learned something. You need to analyze your subject before you start drawing, to get the general proportion somewhat correct.

That is all.
