Monday's class caught up with Ideal Solids - standard geometric shapes found in many objects. We discussed composition, practiced drawing ellipses, and finished the evening with drawings of geometric shapes drawn from imagination and rendered three dimensionally with a single light source. Brian Delgado's drawing (above) exhibits smooth gradual value transitions and strong use of line quality made with the charcoal pencil and compressed charcoal. Brandon Hughes' drawing (below) also exhibits gradual value transitions but he has also employed reductive drawing with the eraser. This adds to the textural quality of the forms as if they were made out of plaster.
