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.
