Speaking of “an object and space surrounding it”, let’s keep in our mind that we are in 3D space!
That’s why we are able to see the “whole picture” of a 2D painting. Just imagine we are living on a 2D plane — we are part of a croquis surface — then, we would be seeing only some shadows of someone watching the croquis in the 3D space outside.
So, any 2D paintings, though their painted surfaces are certainly 2D, in fact exist in 3D space.
Then, why not take advantage of this 2D-in-3D existence??
So, on December 10th, I tried an experiment of this 2D-in-3D existence. It was the usual croquis session, with 6 poses, 20 minutes each.
Here are three, quite “ordinary” croquis, yet notice some strange “cuts” on them.
So, what did I do with these “cuts”???
Please wait until I make my next post!
Three 20-minute croquis from December 10.
Pencil on paper, with “cuts” made in the paper
Not for sale — these are experiments, as you will see in my next post.
* I know Pose 1 looks “head-heavy”, yet I swear that the actual model had a rather large head. So, with Pose 1, I drew her as she was. Then, in Poses 2 and 3, I made adjustments.
