Ashley Garr

Megan Svendsen
Last night the class made drawings addressing Local Value. Local value refers to the quantity of lightness or darkness of the tonalities and colors of an object. The objective was to clearly exhibit that the still life consists of one dark object, one gray and one white.
Ashley has boldly established the contrasting values illustrating the light and volumes of the objects.
Megan too has skillfully illustrated the values yet the emphasis in her drawing is on the light patterns themselves rather than the volume of the objects. This is created by using diagonal hatching instead of following the cross-contours.
