Bread

Today we are looking at texture in drawing, basing ourselves in the kitchen, where we have chosen the humble loaf of bread as our subject. 

These videos explore drawing and mark making techniques.

Gillian Cussen

By varying your mark making through a variety of traditional and more experimental materials and techniques you can create a rich layered textural drawing.

We suggest using traditional drawing tools, such as pencil, graphite and pastel in combination with other tools like biro, coloured pencil, and paint. Alongside the drawing why not try out some alternative techniques like sponging, basic printing and rubbing.

Inge Van Doorslaer

There are so many varied textures to be found in the kitchen, both in food and in ordinary everyday utensils. We have included a selection in our slideshow for you to enjoy.
