This drawing uses various lines and cross-hatching strokes to create the illusion of motion, especially for the wheel in the foreground. It's interesting to see how the artist chose to portray textures of certain parts of the bicycle only, like the shiny, black wires and springs. This is further emphasized by the light and dark contrast between the front wheel and crosshatching. By emphasizing these parts, the rest of the bicycle seems to be blurred in motion.
These drawings are completed entirely in graphite pencil or charcoal on white paper and may be realistic or abstract. They may be derived from the whole or part of the bicycle, arranged alone or with any other object/s or scene. These examples show the exciting level of skill and creativity demonstrated by students applying to the Rhode Island School of Design.
