Wed. Mar. 2 VALUE : Miniatures
Katie Bart's drawing (bottom) exhibits strong fluid like qualities. First, note the stacking of the values and textures beginning with the ground and moving up the composition to the hills and then the sky. Secondly, the textural qualities in the dinosaur push the "eye" vertically while the contours of the dinosaur and the hills move the "eye" horizontally. In addition, the cropping of the head has allowed the negative areas to play a stronger role in the composition by enclosing the shapes.
