Wednesday night the class made single subject studies of tools. The paper was torn to 12 x 18 in. The class was instructed to employ the various line/value techniques of stippling, hatching, cross-hatching and invented textures as well. This drawing by Elaine Gutsch exhibits a clear understanding of using line quality to suggest volume while employing different line techniques (stippling, cross-hatching) to suggest the various materials comprising the tool.
This drawing by Kate Picchiexhibits excellent line quality while beautifully addressing the negative space through stippling. The combination of line and stippled areas also provides a strong sense of weight to the object's placement on the table.
