TUES. 2/7 PROPORTIONS: Organizational Line

Frank Vallin

Lily King
The T/Th class started proportional studies. We began with studying the proportions of wine bottles and then onto more complex forms. Frank's drawing above illustrates the organizational line process. A closer look reveals the central axis line, helpful when rendering symmetrical objects.  Also note the placement of ellipses at every planar shift (i.e. the cylindrical body, cone-like shoulders and the cylindrical neck).  These lines add three-dimensional structure and establish locations for tonalities.
Lilly's drawing illustrates a more "finished" image with tonal areas addressing the "categories of light." The organizing lines have blended into the tonalities. Both drawings exhibit strong attention to the negative areas as well.
