Sketchbook Assignment: Colored Pencil on Black
Using a piece of black paper from your sketchbook, choose one of the photographs of insects by Levon Bins to create a colored pencil drawing. You may draw it very small or fill your whole page. You may spend more than one week on this. The Art Appreciation video is a TED talk by the photographer of this insect. Fascinating!
Watch this 8 minute TED talk photographer Levon Bill, who photographs insects. As you watch, think about how you would capture the different textures and surfaces with colored pencils. You don't need to answer ant questions...just ponder the incredible microscopic intricacy of God's creation that is so easy to miss.
