Amelia Ketzer Dean

John Burgess

Jonathan Martinez
On Wednesday the class continued working with value studies. In addition to texture and the categories of light, the class tried to address a sense of "mood". Amelia's drawing at the top is rich in value and texture. Her invention of the corner adds to the environment creating the appearance of locating these objects within a closet or shed. John's drawing in the middle exhibits a more dramatic sense of light with his "accenting" of the edges of the objects within the negative space. All of the objects possess a strong, individual character and texture as well as volume. Jonathan's drawing at the bottom exhibits  large geometric shapes complemented by bold contour lines. This drawing is very well composed and balances the positive and negative areas with equal importance adding to the success and unity of the composition.
