6/22 Proportions: Organizational Line

Today we worked on proportions by way of the organizational line technique.  By creating a structural armature around objects organizational lines enclose the positive and negative areas allowing the artist to compare and measure the various shapes and forms that make up a composition. Notice in Vildan Kraemer's  drawing (above) how she has isolated the handle and outlying negative areas by placing them in a rectangle.  This allows her to more clearly visualize the curvature of the handle.  In Jemma Eubanks' drawing you can still see how she has measured and compared the center of the coffee pot to the outer edges. Both drawings exhibit the makings for good line and textural quality as well as activating the negative space.
