Above are two excellent examples of this project. Put together a still life of items for a meal, place, setting. Your still life should be the before or after setting of a meal. Create an asymmetrical composition including plates, glassware, silverware, etc. You may also include cereal boxes or condiment bottles and the like for a stronger narrative. Pay attention to the linear perspective and possibly the atmospheric perspective (as in the top drawing). Your objective is to address the local values and the categories of light. Use graphite pencils on 18 x 24 in. drawing paper.
