VALUE: Modeling

Ashley Kiefer

Connor Brusseau
Last night students made drawings addressing the value transitions across a curvilinear form (bottle) and a rectilinear form (block). Rounded forms will have smooth, gradual transitions in tonalities whereas forms with angles will exhibit abrupt changes in tone.
Ashley's drawing above illustrates an exaggerated intensity in value which is very complementary to the surrealistic shadows and space. The shadows seam to reveal the true character or secret life of the objects.
Connor's drawing is a more objective rendering of the forms. The limited tonal range creates a calm and realistic sense of the space as if light were cast through a window. In addition, he has addressed the negative space with subtle atmospheric rendering defining the table surface and enveloping the objects.
