10/18 INK DRAWINGS: Exquisite Corpse

Began drawing with ink on Monday.  To get us started, the class made drawings based on the Surrealist game, "The Exquisite Corpse."  This game requires at least three players.  The paper is folded into thirds: head, torso, legs.  A different person draws in each section. 
Drawing with ink is very different from other mediums; good line quality is essential.  First, you can't erase. Second, you must use line to create tonalities. And third, you can't erase.  Techniques like parallel hatching, cross hatching, scribble gesture, stipple and patterns were explored by the class.
