4/12 Colored Pencil Composition

M/W class started working on 3-5 object compositions using colored pencil on white paper.  General compositional strategies applied (i.e. cropping, engaging negative areas, etc.) as well as the requirement to choose a Color Scheme. Above is an in-progress shot of a drawing by Kate Picchi.  Kate has chosen to go with a monochromatic color scheme of blue with hints of the other primary colors for accents and shadows.  The color blue is very complementary to the cold nature of the objects being drawn. This drawing also demonstrates Kate's understanding of composition.  Not only is it well layed out with implied diagonals and interesting negative areas but she has wisely chosen to repeat the puzzle pieces of which in actuality there is only one.
