Drawing from Life- Examples of Outstanding Observational Drawings for your Art Portfolio

Making Observational work – drawings from life- not a photograph – for your Art Portfolio is important- it demonstrates to Art School Admissions a level of mastery of fundamental art skills.

Observational work for your Art Portfolio can be renderings of yourself, other people either singularly or in groups, interior spaces, buildings, houses, or an entire block, furniture and objects, and still life arrangements.

One of the best ways to build your drawing skills, no matter if you’re a beginner or very skillful at drawing, and anywhere in between, is to take a Figure Drawing class. It is an excellent way to learn and grow as an artist.

Observational drawings illustrate the three-dimensional qualities of the subject matter, including texture, pattern, material, reflection, shade and shadow. And the appearance of the people, objects or scenes is determined by their relative distance and positions to one another.
