11/1 Color

Monday evening the class made drawings using colored pencils on black paper.  We discussed color schemes and their potential to complement and enhance the content or mood of a drawing before choosing our subjects.  Each student worked from a single item, mostly skulls and antlers, some bones.  Trevor Finley's drawing (top) is loosely based on a primary triad color scheme whereas Leah Erickson's drawing below illustrates the strong emotive quality of using a single hue for a monochromatic color scheme.
