looking closely

Because we didn't get very much time to do observational drawings at the museum last week, today I took in a bike for us to draw. The one at the top is mine, the rest are by the children. I think they've looked very closely and have included an awful lot of detail. The middle one was drawn looking at the bike from an oblique angle - not bad for a 7/8 year old!

We did them in pen on cartridge paper, so no opportunity to rub out mistakes. They were encouraged to look at shape, proportion and relative position ie. where once piece of the bike was in relation to another bit!
