FRI. 4/5 Ink: Still Life

Students made ink drawings from two different still life arrangements- small and large scale.
Philip Elias
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 Imhoff
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.
