12/1 Division of Field (continued)

Students continued working on drawings from Monday. Tyler Martinez's drawing is a good example of the compositional strategies at work with the garbage can placement in the bottom right corner balanced out by the door in the background. The "door" is a powerful, metaphorical symbol and adds a sense of expectation to the composition.  It allows the viewer to imagine where the door leads to or what may come through it.  The strong diagonals in the display case as well as the sweeping and arcing shadows help push the eye to the door.
