Class began with a brief lecture on color and color schemes (standard color combinations). Then students drew still life arrangements of balls and dice. Laura has taken a more expressive, almost painterly, approach to rendering the colors. She has confidently captured the volumes and light of the objects and space by layering and embedding warm and cool colors under one another.
After the lunch break, students drew bones and antlers exploring more subjective possibilities. Sierra has beautifully rendered the the light and shadows of this antler with a fine, short hatch technique. The colors gradually flow into one another and the highlights pop addressing all the little nodes around the end of the antler.
