Tues. Mar. 29 INDIA INK: The Exquisite Corpse

We're back. Students practiced and explored drawing with India ink. In order to make tonalities with ink you have to use linear techniques: hatching (lines), cross-hatching (criss-crossing lines), stippling (dots) and patterns. Remember the closer the lines, the darker the value (or dots in regards to stippling).
To acquaint ourselves with ink and pen, we played the Surrealist game, the "Exquisite Corpse." It requires at least 3 players.  Fold a piece of paper into thirds or a section for each player if you have more than three. The first player draws the head. Second draws the torso and third draws waist down. Above are two examples of the evenings bounty.
