Thurs. Mar. 31 INK: Flowers and Skulls

Students made drawings of flowers and skulls employing the various techniques of hatching, cross-hatching, stippling and patterns. Alissa Griffin's drawing (top) has a wide range of mark-making within the value patterns of the bottle. Her marks consist of hatching, short hatches, scribbles and curls.
Avi Scheuenstuhl's drawing (middle) is a beautiful example of sharp line quality and rich gradations achieved through cross-hatching. And lastly, Charlie Sismore's drawing (bottom) employs wash techniques.  Washes are produced by mixing incremental amounts of ink into water creating gray tonalities. The dripping blood is perfectly complemented by the smooth gray, washes.
