THURS. 2/23 Local Value

Thursday night students made drawings from one light object (mug) and one dark object (wine bottle). The objective was to address the local values of the objects as well as the categories of light. When drawing reflective and/ or transparent surfaces it is important to observe the value patterns rather than thinking about the surface. In other words, don't think about "glass" look at the juxtaposition of light and dark shapes. The wine bottle above exhibits strong reflective and transparent qualities. Note the use of highlights and the absence of harsh or heavy outlines. Both objects are clearly of different values.
