  • clean, dry hip or shoulder bone of a large animal like a cow
  • handsaw
  • small log with bark
  • spot light
  • table to place the display on
What to do:
  • Arrange the bone, handsaw and wooden log on the table.
  • Draw this display looking at it from the first angle.
  • Use light pencil markings first before you begin shading the darker areas.
  • Use kneadable rubber to highlight where the light falls.
  • Try making the bark on the log look like bark.
  • Draw the same display again but this time change position.
  • Drawing the display from various angles will make your drawing look very different, see examples above... back
