Students made small drawings in there sketch books of simple still life arrangements and objects brought in from home. The goal was to fill the entire image area paying attention to the value patterns and addressing the categories of light. Alissa Griffin's drawing (above) is a terrible photo but a great little drawing. Very well composed with an acute attention to value patterns. Alissa's drawing is also very energetic and expressive especially for such a small scale. Hollister Nadeau's drawing (below) exhibits an equally acute understanding of the value patterns yet is more controlled; drawn with a calm hand. The textural qualities achieved on the sea shell are particularly well done.
