4/8 Colored Pencil on Black Paper

Selections from the Tues./ Thurs. class.

This drawing by Skye Walker exhibits some beautiful and textural rendering around the cut area of the antler.  The highlighted twisting forms are particularly well done as well.

Carol Venolia's manipulation of the colors is masterfully executed.  This complementary color scheme of yellows and violets was achieved with primary colors and white.  Furthermore, the expressive mark-making adds texture and volume to the form.
 Brenda Dixon's drawing exhibits smooth and fluid transitions throughout this almost complementary color scheme of greens and reds.  The strong use of highlights add an extra sparkle and richness to the drawing making it "pop".
