Thurs. Feb. 10 VALUE PATTERNS: Cheesy Paper

Thursday night we made drawings of value patterns created from raking light across folded paper with circular cutouts. Avi Scheuenstuhl's drawing (above) exhibits very scrupulous observations of the various tonalities as they move across the form.  His approach is one based on subtlety and realism. Note the absence of hard contours.  Edges are created by juxtaposing dark values against light.  Michelle Phillips has taken a more subjective and exaggerated approach to her interpretation of the subject. She has pushed the value range increasing the intensity of the values and the contrast between them creating a very bold and striking image.
