This study of a starfish is one I did for a drawing class I taught with grades 5 & 6. Previously we had done blind contour, texture only and negative space drawings all the while focusing on a single object from nature. When it came time to create this drawing I realized I had left the starfish at class and only had the drawings to go from. That became liberating for me and I like how this study turned out.
