Joanne Wallace

Joelly Lobato de Faria
Students worked on drawings applying and addressing all issues discussed in class to date (composition, value, line, proportions).  Joanne's drawing above is a very good example of the light and dark patterns evident in chiaroscuro drawing. Notice the almost geometric/ cubist division of the composition. Her dramatic use of value adds an iconographic feel to the still life.
Joelly's drawing illustrates the subtle value gradations so indicative of graphite drawings. Notice the division of the background into enclosed positive and negative shapes. This drawing exhibits a strong upper left to bottom right movement starting with the diagonals in the corner pushing down on the objects and pulled by the cast shadows.
