Rendering Light

Continued value studies on Monday evening.  For these drawings the intent was to emphasize the presence of Light over Volume.  Remember that values are influenced by the planar structure of objects; so you can't eliminate the sense of volume entirely.  To emphasize the Light, we employed a single directional hatching technique.  By working with straight diagonal lines over round forms, cross contours are contradicted and the Light in the composition is emphasized.  The drawing at the top is my demo.  Note the accenting in the negative areas to move the eye across the page (similarity).  Chris Susoeff has achieved  depth and weight by placing a heavy dark value in the background with forward projecting cast shadows.
