DISTAL CUES: Composing with Ideal Solids

On Friday class began with a discussion of the Ideal Solids and rendering the categories of light. After the lunch break we used the aforementioned forms to create images addressing the Distal Cues, categories of light, texture and mood. The images below illustrate two very different settings in light and atmosphere. The top image exhibits the cold, stark lighting of a wintery night. The bottom image is a warm, hazy afternoon light. In addition, both drawings effectively use diagonals within the location and placement of the objects. Eduardo has created a zig-zag up the center of the composition like a slithering snake whereas Nicole has an implied diagonal between the two spheres and triangulation with the placement of the cylinders.
