Students in the Friday class explored proportions and construction of the human head in the morning and light and volume in the afternoon. I apologize for not taking pix. Next week we will talk about adding more "subjectivity" to the portrait. Bring a mirror if you have one.

Close observation of Steven's drawing above reveals short, horizontal hatching of white,yellow and blue within the cube. His use of complementary colors in the ground plane allows the colors to stand out while creating a stage-like sense of lighting.
Elliot's drawing has taken the mark-making a step further employing a pattern of radiating hatches around the cross-contours of the ball and wiggly, meandering lines in the ground. He too has used much layering as well as placing a little of all the colors of his palette in all the objects creating a very unified and balanced composition.

Students made ink drawings from two different still life arrangements- small and large scale.
Philip's drawing above illustrates the stipple technique. Note the smooth, gradual transitions in tone achieved with this method. Furthermore, he has situated the still life so as to have a balanced, centralized composition that draws us into the space.
Katherine has employed various hatching techniques in her drawing. Like Philip's, she has captured not only the light patterns on the objects but the textures as well. Katherine's fine line technique has beautifully rendered all the subtleties of light and shadow.

Rachel's drawing exhibits a clean, bold graphic style. Her line quality appears as though it were engraved and then printed. Note how the soft wash in the background holds the composition together pushing the still life forward.
