THURS. 9/22 Value Reduction

For this project, students observed the local values of objects within a still life and their shadows.  If a value ranges from 1 to 5 (high key) it remains white in the drawing.  If a value is low key it is filled in solid black.  These drawings become very abstract and suggest the forms rather directly illustrating the objects. The key to a successful design is to establish a rhythm or path between the black and white shapes and to use repetition if possible.
