Friday morning began with a game of the Exquisite Corpse. This is one of the strongest group displays I've seen yet. All of the work exhibits strong use of value techniques and line quality. Well done and a fun game.
In the afternoon, students practiced the various techniques of value and mark-making on a still life. Dorothy's drawing illustrates the strength and graphic qualities of working with pen and ink. The contours swell and the values are rich. She has effectively used darker forms to recede allowing the objects in the foreground to advance. Her attention to the negative areas between the forms and in the background enhances the contours of the forms as well as re-enforcing depth and space.
