Last night the class made pen and ink drawings from bones. Ben has very keenly observed the volumes and details of the bone with a very "objective" eye. The placement of the bone penetrating or receding into space is particularly effective and dynamic. Elijah's drawing of the skull is more "expressive" in his mark-making and use of tone. The contrasting lines and tonalities accentuate the volumes while adding a dramatic intensity to the light. Joanna's drawing is more "subjective" with her stylization of the thick and thin contours. The wavy, organic lines are very complementary to the form and add a sense of texture.
