WED. 2/22 Local Value

Wednesday night students began studying Local Value; the actual value upon the objects. Still life consisted of one light object (mug) and one dark (wine bottle). The objective was to address the values as well as the categories of light. The drawing above is a good example of line and tone working together. Note the absence of heavy contours, specifically outlines. Observing the left edge of the mug one can see how the edge appears and disappears into dark and light patterns. Outlines flatten form no matter how good the tonal rendering is executed. A "lost and found" line suggests volume. The bottle, although a bit too light, has a good sense of volume and is well proportioned to the mug.
