Double Image Drawing

Guidelines for Stereo Drawings
Working from direct observation of two separate still life arrangements. In the studio I set up two still life's to draw from direct observation (See figure 1). The idea is to draw one drawing directly on top of the other. In the sample below the artist drew the still life on the right first (See figure 2). Then they drew the second still life directly on top of the first (See figure 3). It is best to draw the second drawing in a different color, it will make it easier to keep tract of where you are in the second drawing and lessen the confusion of drawing on top of the first drawing.
After you have both contour line drawings on top of each other use the intersecting shapes to create the composition with various tones, patterns, textures and gradations.
