The objective of this project was to draw attention to the surface of the picture plane by creating a flattened sense of space. Ashley's drawing above perfectly illustrates the process of creating atmosphere with broad, sweeping brush strokes combined with drips and splatters with diluted ink washes. Then she developed the forms with line work. And finally adding solidity to the forms with white ink washes. Valentin's drawing exhibits great use of materials as well. The medium of ink and washes is a perfect match for illustrating the wet and slimy textures of fish and water. Look closely at the delicate gradations he's achieved on the back's of the fish and lure.
