WED. 3/27 INK (rocks and lemons)

Emilee Rivera
Last night, the class made ink drawings of a small still life arrangement consisting of a lemon, a rock and a small, geometric, house-like form. Students used the technique of their choosing. Emilee's drawing above illustrates the cross-hatching technique. The centralized location of the still life establishes depth giving the feeling of one peering at this tiny "cliff" from afar. The criss-crossing marks chisel out the structure of the rock while addressing light and dark areas of the forms and space. Furthermore, notice how she has addressed the contours and edges of the forms with broken (or lost and found lines) and juxtaposing light and dark values.
