Modeling is the application of value gradations to render forms 3-dimensionally. Students observed light patterns and addressed the categories of light within simple still life arrangements. Still life consisted of one dark object, one light object and one mid-value object. The objective was to address the categories of light as well as translating the local values of each object to the drawing. The additional challenge to this particular arrangement of objects is the shiny, reflective surface. The thing to remember is that you are not drawing a shiny surface instead you are drawing patterns of light and dark values.
