8/30 Ideal Solids

Last night we discussed drawing circles in perspective; called ellipses.  From there we discussed Ideal Solids: sphere, cone, cylinder, open cylinder and cube. These forms are standard geometric shapes found in most objects.  For instance a wine bottle is one long cylinder with a cone and an open cylinder stacked on top. After drawing the forms, we applied the Categories of Light; which are six different tonalities used to describe the way light strikes form.  The six tonalities are cast shadow, core shadow, shadow, light and high light. Drawing by Alan DeMarche.
