Last night, students continued with compositional studies exploring balance and cropping in preparation for the final project. Grantt's drawing above has effectively activated the negative areas by cropping the wooden forms. We enter the drawing on the left and follow the overlapping forms to the right. This rhythm is reenforced by the repeating circle motif seen in the two central circles followed by the open circle in the bottom right. The drawing is strengthened by the full range of values and textural elements.
