TEXTURE: Organic Forms

Last night the class made drawings from organic forms (shells, seed pods, leaves and pine cones, etc.) The objective was to compose an iconographic image of a single form addressing the light and textural qualities. Notice in the drawing above the thickening and thinning, swelled contour lines. In addition the use of dark values in the valleys and lighter values to define the ridges and peaks.

PORTRAITS continued

Last Wednesday and yesterday the class continued making portraits of each other. Although both  drawings below exhibit figures locked into a strong gaze the moods and characteristics are very different. Ashley's drawing has very soft lighting. The focus is soft as well. The gaze is slightly downward and pensive. Drew's drawing is very dramatic. The values are rich and bold and the figure gazes upward into the distance.

*Special note portfolios are due tomorrow Wed., Dec. 2 The list is above.
