WED. 4/3 INK: Large Still Life

Colton Davis
Rachel Edelstein
Last night, students were presented with the largest still life arrangement to date. The goal was to translate the still life with a technique that was more personal and subjective rather than focusing on absolute volume and light. The two examples above both have very strong illustrative qualities. Colton's drawing is very warm due to his limited and controlled use of white combined with the continuous gray tones. It is reminiscent of Mad Magazine and Cracked comics.
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.
