COMPOSITION: Balancing the Positive and Negative Areas
Last night the class made drawings exploring the distribution and division of the positive and negative areas within a composition. Mika has successfully divided the composition into three areas of various sizes (not including the areas within the handles). The location of the handles seems to arc rather than moving in straight diagonals. In contrast, Tatiana's drawing exhibits bold diagonal or triangular shapes within the negative areas. In addition, both drawings illustrate rich textures and values adding to the volume, light and mood.
