Last week the class worked on the Midterm drawing while I reviewed portfolios one on one.
Alondra's drawing is proportioned well to the paper. The values are rich illustrating local value as well as light. Most striking is the manner in which she has rendered the background with long diagonal hatches.
Ashley has very skillfully framed the still life considering the proportions of the objects as well as the cast shadows. Local values and light are very well rendered. Even the darkest objects exhibit a full range of value and light patterns.
Gavino has employed a high key value range yet the light is strong and the objects are dimensional. Like Alondra's drawing, it is the mark-making that gives this drawing energy and dynamics.
