WED. 2/29 VALUE: Light vs. Volume

Alisha Ascencio

Alicia Godwin
Rather than using value to make something appear three dimensional and volumetric, artists can place emphasis on Light Patterns. When artists emphasis light, there is a more subtle sense of volume. Alisha's drawing at the top employs a single, directional, hatch to rendering the light patterns. The hatch technique contradicts the cross-contours subordinating volume. Alicia's drawing on the bottom illustrates the scribble technique. Both drawings exhibit a more expressive and energized rendering of the still life not seen in the previous class drawings.
