VALUE: Texture

Bret Hardesty

Karlo Pillula
Last night the class made charcoal drawings addressing value and textural elements. The intensity of Bret's drawing (top) is attributed to the high contrast of the dark background and the light foreground. He has very skillfully rendered the textures without sacrificing the volume of the objects.
Karlo's drawing exhibits a much different mood and lighting. The entire drawing itself is very textural. The variable tonalities and grainy texture of the space provide an air of a cold earthen dwelling candle lit or moonlit by an open window.
