Last night students addressed local values observed on paper with cut-away holes. The objective was to apply the techniques explored in the previous drawing but this time with an actual still life. Emily's drawing above is a texturally rich drawing with a strong sense of mood. Here handling of the materials is exceptional; combining additive as well as reductive techniques.
Kevin's drawing has a very different sense of light of that exhibited in Emily's drawing. The strong dark background pushes the foreground whereas the still life emerges from the background in Emily's drawing. Some areas of note in Kevin's drawing are the well accented line work as well as the texturally tones and reductive marks in the surface of the paper.
