I’ve looked in vain for the first drawing by Fortunino Matania. The one with the lady prone on the beach. Does anyone know it’s title?May 27, 2020 at 5:52 am #553706Federico GioppatoParticipant
I state that I am Italian and novice.
Despite being able to understand everything, or almost, I have a couple of doubts about the exercises to do !!!
I thank in advance who can help me !!!
What is meant by utensil? Any items I have at home?
What is the difference between hard and soft utensil?

Is it expected to struggle with some of the homework? I’m drawing the basic objects and feel like I’m struggling with it a good bit.June 2, 2020 at 5:47 pm #565287Mr. MirParticipant
Hi Federico, I will answer your questions to the best of my ability, for I am new to this site and still learning as an artist.
Utensils would be things like pencils, pens, colored pencils–anything that you can draw with.
If you use Graphite pencils there are two different types of marks that they can make. Hard marks, defined by ‘H’, such as ‘2H’, ‘4H’. The bigger the number the harder it will make a mark. Soft marks, defined by ‘B” such as ‘6B’ stand for ‘Blackness”. How dark of a mark you can get with a softer pencil, I believe that’s what it means.
I hope this helps, and anyone feel free to correct me if I’m wrong!

Hi Chris, I believe it’s alright and expected to struggle with some of the homework because for most this is their first introduction into art, so it’s only natural to struggle when it comes to learning new things at first, and as you keep at it you gradually get better.
